WVDOH and A&O Railroad Crossing Improvement and Paving Project: Route 20 to be Closed at the Railroad Crossing north of Main Street August 22nd through August 24th, 2020
August 6, 2020
BUCKHANNON, WV: The West Virginia Department of Highways and A&O Railroad will proceed with a railroad crossing improvement and paving project (i.e. Project) at the railroad crossing located on Route 20 just north of Main Street on Saturday, August 22nd, 2020.
The Project is expected to take three (3) days to complete and both the northbound and southbound lanes of Route 20 will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicular traffic for the duration of the Project. However, if conditions dictate otherwise, the length of the Project may be extended.
To avoid congestion, everyone is reminded to please use the Main Street exit of U.S. Route 33 (Corridor H) and/or the Old Weston Road when entering Buckhannon from the west and to use the Morton Avenue exit through North Buckhannon when entering Buckhannon from the east. Southbound traffic from Route 20 North will need to detour via either the Liggett Addition Road or Morton Avenue.
The City of Buckhannon is providing this notice as a public service as the Project is an undertaking of both the West Virginia Department of Highways and A&O Railroad (not the Buckhannon Streets & Parks Department). The City appreciates the West Virginia Department of Highways and A&O Railroad staff in working with our Director of Public Works and City Engineer to ensure that the Project runs smoothly and disruptions are kept to a minimum.
