MORGANTOWN – The West
Virginia Division of Highways advises that the junction of Mileground Road,
Cheat Road, and Point Marion Road will close to traffic on Friday, July 28 at
11:59 p.m. and will not reopen until Friday, August 11 at 11:59 p.m.
The two week closure is part of the
Airport Road-Easton Elementary upgrade project which will completely
re-construct the intersection. This will be done by aligning the Cheat Road and
Mileground approaches, making them the mainline movement and maintaining two
full-width travel lanes in each direction. Point Marion Road and Easton Mill
Road will become the side street approaches. All approaches will benefit from
more effective traffic signal timing since there will no longer be a heavy left
turn demand to accommodate.
All travelers will be detoured
around the work site. Suggested alternate routes include:
