US 52 in Gilbert Closed for Slide Repairs



The West Virginia Department of Transportation announces that a major slide on US 52, between Little Egypt Road (Happy Days Diner) and Old Country Road, in Gilbert, has caused the road to be closed while Division of Highways District 2 maintenance crews work to clean-up the trees, rock, mud and debris over the roadway.

While the DOH has placed additional resources into the clean-up efforts, it could take a couple of days to complete. During this emergency work, the DOH continues to maintain one lane for emergency vehicles but is currently not open to regular traffic.

Message boards advise an alternate route of Rt. 80 to County Rt.10 (Man), to WV 44 (Logan) back to US 52 and is approximately 45 miles.
