Published 9:14am Friday, November 1, 2013


CHESAPEAKE — State Route  7 is closed at County Road 124 (Tallow Ridge Road), just east of Chesapeake, due to downed lines following a rash of storms and high winds overnight.

The closure is anticipated to be in effect through the morning and early afternoon hours while the local utility company works to make repairs and restore the lines.

ODOT and emergency crews are providing traffic control, and motorists may detour via U.S. 52 East and the 17th Street (Nick Rahall) Bridge at Huntington, W.Va. and the Sixth Street (State Route 527/Robert Byrd) Bridge in Huntington to State Route 7/State Route 527 at Chesapeake.
