Road work causes major interstate backups

  • May 13, 2014
Interstate traffic eastbound was backed up just west of the south junction of Interstste 70 and 79 to the north junction and onto Interstate 79 south toward Meadow Lands Tuesday as traffic was limited to one lane while work was performed along the passing lane beyound the south junction. - Jim McNutt/Observer-Reporter Order a Print

State Department of Transportation construction crews repairing center line potholes on Interstate 70/79 near the south junction caused lengthy backups on both interstates Tuesday. Eastbound traffic was directed to a single lane past the Beau Street exit, leading to congestion throughout the day from there to the north junction and onto I-79 beyond the Meadow Lands exit. Crews finished the pothole repairs in that area late Tuesday and expected to perform similar work on I-79 between the Marianna and Laboratory exits Wednesday.
