Paving and lane work will be going on around the county

The West Virginia Division of Highways has announced multiple paving or lane work projects around Morgan County that will affect traffic flow and drivers’ schedules.

Work was set to begin along U.S. 522 in the area of Caperton Furnitureworks/ Gat Creek to add a turn lane for the factory. Traffic in that area will be reduced to one lane during daytime hours while the project is underway.

Paving operations will begin this Thursday on Timber Ridge Road, Big Oak Tree Road and Fish Hatchery Road in Morgan County. Paving will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work is expected to last until approximately November 17. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic.

Motorists are advised to stay alert and travel with caution through the work zones.

Exact schedule is weather dependent.
