Park and ride lot to be closed

WEIRTON – The new park and ride lot off U.S. Route 22 near the Harmon Creek exit will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday to 2 p.m. Saturday while crews paint lines there.

The work is pending suitable weather.

There also are plans to close it in mid-November, on a date to be announced, so lighting can be installed, said officials with the state Division of Highways.

State highway officials said though the lot hasn’t been opened formally, commuters involved in carpools have been using it since it was paved.
