WVDOT reminds drivers to watch speed, and for workers, during interstate upgrades


Repairs continued on Interstate-64 Tuesday as crews began much needed mill and fill work to the road.

The project started Monday night and could take up to 4 months to complete. Work zone crews will first repair areas of the interstate from the Dunbar interchange to the Oakwood Road interchange in Charleston before the repaving starts.

The eastbound lanes will get attention first. Crews will make their way towards Charleston before heading back west to Dunbar. West Virginia Paving will put to use $18.6 million from the state to complete the work.

The Manager of the project, Ryan Canfield, said they will cover 5.05 miles and will incorporate about 30 lane miles worth of new asphalt, calling it a much needed upgrade.
