Route 22 closed by fuel spill

WEIRTON – U.S. Route 22 was closed from the Harmon Creek exit to the Main Street exits late Thursday and remained reduced to one lane early today after diesel fuel was spilled from a truck.

The highway was expected to be re-opened at noon today, according to the Brooke County Sheriff’s Department.

The section of the highway east of that area, from the Harmon Creek exit to Three Springs Drive, already had been reduced to one lane while crews resurfaced it with a skid-resistant material.
