Road closure pending in Mercer County


Drivers who typically use WV Route 112 between the Ingleside exit of I-77 and Ada in Mercer County may want to find a new route.

The West Virginia Division of Highways said beginning Monday, a portion of the road will be closed while crews work to replace a pipe. The closure is expected to last 5 days, depending on the weather.

The pipe replacement requires a lot of excavation. Concrete barriers will be placed in the road to prevent drivers from trying to drive through the site.
