Road closed for repairs

— West Virginia Division of Highways announces the closing of CR 19/55, Mount Hope Access Road, according to Greg Hylton, District Nine Construction Engineer.

The Mount Hope Access Road, CR 19/55 that intersects with U.S. 19 and CR 27, Packs Branch Road, will be closed starting Aug. 5 while the Velotta Co. makes repairs to the concrete pavement.

Traffic will be detoured onto W.Va. 16, the Bradley exit, from U.S. 19 to access Mount Hope. The anticipated completion date is Sept. 30.

Motorists are asked to reduce their speed, observe all traffic control signs and devices, and use caution while traveling through the work zone. Delays are expected; therefore, motorists should allow additional time for their commute or seek alternate routes.

Inclement weather or unforeseen conditions may change the work schedule.
