CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Work next week to ramps of the West Virginia Turnpike is expected to cause closures.
Construction on the final part of the Interstate 77 rehabilitation project in Mercer County will close the southbound on and off ramps at Exit 1 in Bluefield. A contractor will rubblize existing concrete and resurface on Monday and Tuesday, making it impossible for vehicles to pass through.
The Parkways Authority announced Thursday full-depth concrete repairs will begin next week at the Kanawha City interchange in Kanawha County. The project will require Exit 95 ramps to be closed nightly between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.
Work will first begin on the northbound exit ramp, but closures could affect both ramps at various times.
