The heavy rains overnight are making things worse for a crumbling road in Rogers County that's in need of emergency repairs.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is now accepting bids for repairs on a half-mile stretch of state Highway 20. The section of the road is sliding down Keetonville Hill.

State engineers say it will cost up to $4 million to fix.

The heavily-traveled stretch of road has been closed since heavy rains earlier this month caused a landslide.
