Route 2 reduced through April 1
State Route 2 between Beech Bottom and Wellsburg has been reduced to one lane following a slide along the adjacent hillside. State highway officials announced the reduction will be in place through April 1, with traffic regulated by temporary signals throughout the day. State highway officials have been monitoring the area since a slide from the adjacent hillside closed traffic for several hours on Friday and recurred over the weekend. Crews have been working to prepare a site in the same area for the new Ohio River bridge.
