West Virginia highways crews are bringing down a slipping hillside along Interstate 77 near the Virginia border.
The DOH says the southbound lanes will be reopened soon after the debris is removed, while one northbound lane is expected to be opened by nightfall.
The second northbound lane, which has been closed over a half-mile stretch since Dec. 2, will remain closed indefinitely to allow for additional debris removal.
Traffic is being rerouted while the interstate is shut down.
