UPDATE (Jan. 10, 4:52 p.m.): Metro 911 says crews closed the northbound and southbound ramps of the Belle exits (Mile Marker 96) on Interstate 64/77.
The closure follows a crash that shut down the eastbound lanes of U.S. Route 60 in Campbells Creek.
The West Virginia 511 traffic map shows significant backup in the area.
The map also shows traffic in the Chesapeake-Chelyan area. Drivers who cannot use the Belle interstate exits are most likely getting off at Chelyan to use the bridge there as a detour.
UPDATE (Jan. 10, 4:05 p.m.): Metro 911 says the eastbound lanes of U.S. Route 60 are still closed after a crash at the mouth of Campbells Creek Drive.
Crews are asking people to avoid the nearby Belle exits on Interstate 64/77. The West Virginia 511 traffic map shows significant backup in that area.

Medics cleared the driver for injuries, according to Metro 911.
