LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- La Crosse authorities say a landslide has blocked both westbound lanes of Highway 14/61 near the Highway 35 split at the south end of La Crosse.

A La Crosse Tribune report says the slide happened Saturday about 5:30 p.m. Traffic is being rerouted into the eastbound lanes, and drivers should expect significant delays in the area.

The county highway department has been called in to help clean up. No estimate has been provided for how long that might take.
