Adrian road repairs underway

Road reconstruction underway on Route 20 South at Adrian.

ADRIAN — If you’ve been wondering what’s happening on Route 20 South near the Adrian hill, the West Virginia Department of Highways and Marks’ Drilling, LLC are diligently working to repair and reinforce a landslide.  They are currently drilling and preparing to install steel piles into the shoulder area in order to stabilize the roadway, according to District Engineer Brian Cooper.

He said the stoplights will be in place until the piles are drilled and concrete lagging is placed between them to backfill the shoulder area. Cooper estimates the project will be completed near the end of October.

Cooper also gave an update on the Brushy Fork Road project, reporting the installation of the new draining system is almost complete. They are now prepping to pour curbing and pave, in hopes of also finishing that project this fall.
