Ramp and Lane Closures will Significantly Impact Traffic
The West Virginia
Division of Highways is set to begin a rehabilitation project on the Interstate
64 bridges that cross over US 52 in Cabell County.
Construction Company, Inc. was awarded the $2,910,505.41 contract in April. The
project will involve lowering US 52 under the bridges to improve clearance,
rehabilitating the abutments and sub-structure, replacing the steel bridge
beams, and constructing a new concrete bridge deck. The current contract
completion date is August 11, 2017.
will include lane restrictions along I-64 East and West near Exit 6 (West
Huntington/Ironton, OH) and intermittent closures of the eastbound Exit 6 entrance
and exit ramps. These varying closureswill occur throughout the
duration of construction and at times will significantly impact traffic.
first phase of the project consists of a weeklong closure of the Exit 6 eastbound
exit and entrance ramps to allow crews to perform the necessary work to lower
the roadway going beneath the overpass bridges. The closure begins on Saturday,
July 30 and the ramps will remain closed until Friday, August 5. The westbound
entrance and exit ramps will remain open during this time.
The following detour
routes have been designated:

I-64 traffic will use Exit 1 at Kenova/Ceredo and
