Hillside slip


CLIFTON — A hillside slip caused the temporary closure of W.Va. 62 near the West Columbia/Clifton area on Thursday afternoon.


Carrie Bly, spokesperson with the West Virginia Division of Highways, said the slip was reported around 1:20 p.m. The road soon reopened to one lane of traffic with both lanes reopened by 4:45 p.m.


Bly said there were no reports of injury or damage done by the hillside slip and this slip was just the latest across the state this week after fluctuating temperatures, snow and rain.


Motorists who travel this section of W.Va. 62 are familiar with this piece of road which can be “uneven” to say the least.


Bly acknowledged the division of highways is aware there is a problem in the area but at this time there were no “long-term plans” to fix the area.
