One lane of I-77 North near Bluefield remains closed

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - The right lane of Interstate 77 near Bluefield remains closed Tuesday as crews work to secure the site of a rock slide.

Crews have set up barriers and closed down the right hand lane around mile marker three as debris from the embankment. 

Officials were worried about the potential for another slide. Geologists examined the area Monday evening to determine next course of action.

Earlier this year, a large rock slide closed I-77 North to traffic in the same area for more than a week.
