The West Virginia Division of Highways said the I-70 crossovers between Exit 5 (Elm Grove) and Exit 10 (Cabela Drive) will begin to be utilized.

Eastbound and westbound traffic will temporarily be reduced to one lane, slowed, or stopped for crossovers to go into effect at the designated time.

Once fully in effect, there will be two lanes in use for westbound and eastbound traffic along I-70 from Exit 5 to Exit 10.

The left lane of I-70 Westbound will be diverted onto a single lane of I-70 East in a contra flow traffic pattern between these two exits, while eastbound traffic will be maintained in two lanes.

This traffic pattern is part of the ongoing construction of I-70 and will continue until February 1, 2020. Any questions or concerns regarding the I-70 Bridges Project can be directed to the hotline at (304)810-3214 or
