MT. HOPE - A road linking Mt. Hope to Route 19 is set to close for repairs next week.
The West Virginia Division of Highways says county route 19/55, also known as the Mt. Hope Access Road will be closing August 5th so repairs can be made. It's an access road carrying drivers that take the Mt. Hope exit from Route 19, to Pax Branch Road.
The work is expected to be completed by September 30th. Traffic to Mt. Hope will be detoured onto Route 16 at the Bradley exit.
Drivers are advised to use caution and allow extra time.
