Extensive excavation, culvert work and fill operations have been going on at that location for several weeks.

West Virginia Division of Highways officials said a new access to Keystone Lane will be established from Radio Station Road. The new access is approximately 0.2 miles from the intersection of WV 9.

Myers Road – known to some historically as Kotex Lane – was closed two weeks ago to through traffic.

Access to Myers Road has been blocked at Johnsons Mill Road.

Local traffic and residents can reach lower Myers Road off U.S. 522. The road is then closed at the bypass construction area.
