HUNTINGTON - As the winter season approaches, the West Virginia Division of Highways will be winding down work on the Interstate 64 rehabilitation project between Milton and Crooked Creek/U.S. 35 in Teays Valley.

Phase one of the project, from Milton to Hurricane, is now fully complete and open to traffic.

Work on phase two between Hurricane and Teays Valley will conclude for the year with a second layer paving project, on the westbound side, set to begin this week, depending on the weather. With the completion of this portion of the paving project, the contraflow walls will be taken down and the contractor will begin cleaning up exit ramps.

In the spring, phase three, from Crooked Creek/U.S. 35 to Teays Valley, the final resurfacing, will be completed as a nighttime paving project. Phase three is finished for the remainder of the year.

While the DOH winds down these phases of the project, drivers should expect delays for the next two weeks.

The Division of Highways reminds travelers to slow down in work zones. The speed limit remains 55 mph from Hurricane to U.S. 35, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and law enforcement agencies will continue their enforcement until the contraflow walls have been removed.
