BLUEFIELD -

A rock slide causes traffic delays in Mercer County Monday night.

The right lane on the North bound side of Interstate 77 around mile marker 3 is closed Monday night after a rock slide.

It happened around 2 p.m.

Dispatchers said officials with the Department of Highways are concerned that it could happen again.

This slide occurred just a few hundred feet from the site of a slide that happened earlier this year, leaving the road closed for days.
