CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) District 2 reported Thursday that it has completed 29 slide repairs and has another 14 in the works.

District 2 consists of Cabell, Lincoln, Logan, Mingo and Wayne counties.

WVDOH officials say the state’s topography and sometimes heavy rainfall lead to erosion and evaluating road slide issues requires a cost-effective process that focuses on long-term solutions.
