Sandy Creek bridges closing for inspection

RIPLEY – The Sandy Creek bridges on northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 77 near mile-marker 145 in Jackson County will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday for a bridge inspection, said Cliff Essig, District Three bridge engineer with the West Virginia Division of Highways.

Single-lane closures are expected from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on these days. Motorists will not experience any significant delays but are asked to reduce their speed and follow traffic-control devices through the work zone, Essig said.
