PRINCETON, W.Va — UPDATED: Standstill traffic will start around 9:00am tomorrow, May 17th.
A major project on Interstate 77 that will start tomorrow is mobilizing first-responders and drawing the ire of some residents.
A Princeton resident said at peak times the number could reach 7,000 a day.
Since the construction began, there have been 2 guardrails completely wiped out by tractor trailers as they make the turn to get back on I-77. Roads have been blocked by police next to Chili’s restaurant in Princeton to help speed up the traffic that at times is backed up for 10 miles.
Construction will continue through November, so it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
