Logan County road shut by mudslide reopens

By Staff, wire reports

LYBURN, W.Va. -- The state Department of Transportation says residents can again drive along a section of road in Logan County that was cut off by a mudslide.

Traffic was beginning to flow again on Madison Creek Road as of Thursday evening, according to a message on the department's Twitter account.

DOT spokeswoman Carrie Bly highway crews continued Thursday to remove debris and add gravel in muddy spots of the road. She says residents may face temporary delays as crews monitor traffic.

Three dozen residents were removed from their homes last week after a hillside gave way and cut off access to the road.

Bly said design plans are being finished for a temporary causeway across the Guyandotte River.
