GLEN DALE, W.Va. -
In Marshall County, the stretch of road between McMechen and Glen Dale known as the narrows has re-opened.
That part of Route 2 has been a trouble spot for local motorists for years. The narrows have been under construction with lane closures in both the north and south bound lanes.
This section of highway has been subject to slips and rock falls resulting in many accidents. Part of the project included a fence to prevent rocks from falling onto the highway. Special Federal funding was acquired to repair the road.
