DOT to build temporary bridge along troubled Logan County road
LYBURN, W.Va. -- The state Department of Transportation on Monday began installing a temporary bridge along a troubled section of roadway in Logan County.
Contractors installed six 12-inch diameter pipes under a causeway along Madison Creek Road in the Lyburn area, said DOT spokeswoman Carrie Bly in a news release.
Crews will next install a temporary bridge deck under the pipes, which would begin sometime next week. Contractors would also work on the W.Va. 10 side of Prince Street for placement of the temporary bridge, according to the release.
Earlier this month, dozens of people in the area were displaced by a mudslide.
DOT officials said that it's impossible to pin the mudslide on one cause, but that it was probably caused by the combination of nearby road construction and the consistent rain.
