Wetzel County, W.Va. (WTRF) — The erosion of a major highway in Wetzel County is about to be stopped thanks to some special intervention from Governor Jim Justice.
A slip, on West Virginia Route 7 near New Martinsville, will be repaired by the Division of Highways starting Monday, July 19.
It began over a year ago and has been a problem for travelers headed to Morgantown, with only one lane open.
The funding comes from an additional $150-Million in funding approved by the legislature after the governor pushed for it.
District 6 Engineer Tony Clark says the work should be finished as soon as next month.
