W.Va. 3 could reopen in two weeks

SUNDIAL, W.Va. -- A section of W.Va. 3 in Raleigh County closed by a rockslide could reopen in two weeks or less.

The state Department of Transportation is allowing emergency vehicles to cross the road near Sundial. Department spokesman Brent Walker told The Register-Herald that he estimates the road will reopen to general traffic in 10 days to two weeks.

Three large boulders and debris fell onto the road Dec. 27. Walker said crews are breaking up unstable bedrock and working to stabilize the hillside. He said maintenance crews will look for other potential slides in the area after the slide is cleared.
