CHARLESTON, WV -

The West Virginia Division of Highways announced on Friday, April 4, it an emergency closure of Madison Creek Road in Logan County.

Construction is underway on a new portion of Route 10, just above Madison Creek Road. The contractor overseeing that project expressed concerns for the safety of motorists, according to a news release from the West Virginia Division of Highways. It's due to slipping of the hillside and the potential of heavy rains according to the news release. The road will remain closed until further notice.

In January, construction was completed on a causeway crossing the Guyandotte River. The temporary structures' primary purpose is to give residents of Madison Creek access to their homes during these types of necessary closures.
