Delays Expected During New River Gorge Construction

A road construction project will cause delays for some visitors to the New River Gorge National River. The National Park Service says the project got underway Monday along Fayette Station Road next to the New River Gorge Bridge. The road along the south side of the river will be closed to all traffic. The road along the north side of the river will be converted to a temporary two-way traffic pattern, and parking lots and other facilities at Fayette Station will remain open. The Kaymoor Trailhead near the bottom of Fayette Station Road also will be closed to hikers. The project involving road widening, repaving and repairs continues through July 28.
