The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is calling an emergency meeting to figure out how to pay for repairs to another crumbling road.

Heavy rain sent Highway 20 sliding down Keetonville Hill earlier this month.  The highway was declared unsafe for drivers and has been closed.

Engineers say it will cost up to $4 million to fix the half-mile landslide.  A project that big requires special state approval.

The meeting will be held on Friday at 2 p.m. in Oklahoma City.  Commissioners will consider an emergency contract for rebuilding the damaged roadway.
