A Wheeling road will close today in order to make repairs to a road slip.

The West Virginia Department of Highways is informing drivers that Fairmont Avenue will be closed at milepost 1.5 through March 6. Traffic will be closed on weekdays from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The only traffic that will be allowed through during the closures is school buses. Traffic will also be maintained by temporary traffic signals during non-work hours.

Road crews recommend taking Frazier Avenue to Mozart Road or WV 88 to 29th Street. Weather or unforeseen circumstances could alter the project’s schedule.
