PANTHER - A lane of traffic is blocked
Wednesday on a deteriorating road in McDowell County.
There is a 16 inch hole on Panther
Creek Road in Panther from a culvert that has caused the road to deteriorate,
according to Division of Highways Officials.
DOH Crews have been on-scene since Wednesday
morning and traffic is flowing through the other lane, according to officials.
Crews have been putting down a steel plate in the road as a temporary fix and
expect both lanes to be open in the afternoon.
DOH officials said once County Route 1
is open again, permanent repairs will be made to both the culvert and Panther
