Lewisburg Road Test

LEWISBURG (WVVA)- Starting November 4th The City of Lewisburg in cooperation with the WVDOH will conduct a test of prohibiting left hand turns at the Route 219 and Route 60 intersection. 

During the test left hand turns will be prohibited between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

Signs describing the no left hand turn will be installed on the overhead traffic lights.

Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester says, "We have noticed how traffic has moved more smoothly during special events when left hands turns at this intersection have been prohibited, and we wanted to test the option of restricting left hand turns in an effort to improve traffic flow. We appreciate the willingness of the public to test this possible solution, and we encourage feedback on the project."

The test period will continue until November 29th.
