The section of Highway 530 near Oso that closed Friday because of a slow-moving landslide has reopened after days of monitoring found no further movement.

The state Department of Transportation said on its website that both directions of Highway 530 near the Snohomish County town reopened Wednesday afternoon.

The road was closed Friday night as a precaution because officials said the slope where the slide was located moved about 4 feet last week between Tuesday and Saturday.

Transportation officials said it has not shown any measurable movement since then.
