paving project on US 119, Grafton Road, from Hornbeck Road to Scott Avenue has
ceased and work will resume in Spring 2018. While removing the old asphalt, the
contractor discovered significant damage to the concrete base of the roadway.
Work to repair the damaged concrete began in late October, but cold
temperatures are now interfering with this process.
West Virginia Division of Highways has decided to halt work on the project until
more appropriate weather and temperature conditions are present to avoid the
risk of compromising the materials being used. This decision has been made
with consideration to its impacts on the travelling public while also being
fiscally responsible in terms of getting the most life out of the roadway
