Mining to restrict I-79 travel in Greene County
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Longwall mining beneath Interstate 79 in Greene County has prompted the state Department of Transportation to issue speed limit and lane restriction advisories.
Starting Thursday, I-79 will be restricted to one lane in each direction and to a speed limit of 45 mph between mile marker 10 and 12. The area lies between the Kirby-Garards Fort interchange (Exit 7) and Waynesburg (Exit 14). The interstate is the major thoroughfare between Pittsburgh and Morgantown, W.Va.
The restrictions will continue indefinitely.
