A new roadway lighting project is set to begin this weekend in Huntington.

The lighting project is happening along I-64 at 6 interchanges from Kenova all the way up to the Huntington Mall.

High mast lighting towers will be installed this Saturday and Sunday at:

  • Kenova (Exit 1)
  • West Huntington (Exit 6)
  • 5th Street (Exit 8)
