I-77 Reopens After West Virginia Rock Slide

Posted: Updated:

A week after a rockslide shut down part of Interstate 77 near Bluefield, W.Va., crews have finally finished clearing the road.

Last Wednesday a rockslide blocked off both northbound lanes of the highway. Since then, crews have been working around the clock to clean up the rubble and detour traffic. Wednesday, after a final assessment of the hillside, WVDOT re-opened both lanes.
