BLUEFIELD -- Traffic is moving again on northbound Interstate 77 near the West Virginia-Virginia border a week after a rock slide.
Department of Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox says crews reopened both northbound lanes Wednesday night.
The slide occurred March 20 at mile marker 3 in the Bluefield area. Traffic was rerouted onto U.S. 460 in Princeton where it reconnects with the interstate.
Wet and wintry weather had hampered efforts to clean up the slide and reinforce the hillside. Mattox says the cleanup was a grueling job for Division of Highways crews and contractor Vecellio & Grogan, Inc.
