DOH restarting repair projects on I-64 and I-77 in Charleston area

Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia Division of Highways is going to restart a repair project on sections of Interstate 64 and Interstate 77.

Beginning Friday, April 5, work will begin on I-64 West/I-77 North near Mile Marker 100. Travelers can expect lanes to be closed and delays through the rest of the spring and summer.

Drivers should slow down and stay alert in the work zone, as traffic patterns could change daily, according to the DOH.

Work on weekends will be from Friday 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday.

Weekday work hours will be from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Tuesday through Friday.

The project consists repaving, replacing concrete on the deck and replacing expansion joints on the Eugene A. Carter Memorial Bridge. Crews will also make repairs to the ramps, junction area of I-64/I-77 and the Leon Sullivan Way exit and Brooks Street entrance ramps in the Charleston area.

Work on the Eugene A. Carter Memorial Bridge is expected to begin in late April. The project is anticipated to be completed by August 2013.
