Rockslide Repair Project on 340 issues update
The Rockslide Repair Project along U.S. 340 near Harpers Ferry provided an update over the weekend.
The repairs are estimated at 65% completion and currently on schedule to be finished by December 10th, 2023.
Contracting crews have removed loose rocks and boulders from the mountainside above the roadway since September.
The one mile section of 340 has remained closed for motorist’s safety during the duration of the work by the West Virginia Department of Transportation as boulders the size of cars have fallen during the work, sometimes unexpectedly.
Since September, more than 1,500 cubic yards of rock totaling 2,300 tons have been removed.
Until the work is completed, motorists will need to plan to continue to use the 22 mile, 35 minute long detour.
