I-64 closed in both directions

Feb. 01, 2013 @ 12:04 PM

MILTON — West Virginia State Police are preparing to close Interstate 64, in both directions, just east of Milton.

The closure is at the request of American Electric Power as it needs to tend a electricity line that is need of repair. The closure should last for 15 to 20 minutes while utility crews stretch the line, said State Police 1st Sgt. K.S. Dickson.

The closure affects both lanes of traffic from the 28-mile marker to the Putnam-Cabell county line.
