Mingo Junction hydrant flushing set

MINGO JUNCTION — Officials with the Village of Mingo Junction Water Department announced plans to flush the distribution system and conduct flow and pressure tests on all hydrants south of the water plant.

This will include South Commercial Street and side streets, Deandale Hill, and state Route 151 and side streets.

The flush and testing will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Customers should be aware of pressure fluctuations and discolored water. If water is discolored, customers are urged to use only a cold-water faucet to clear out the line to minimize getting discolored water in the water heating system.

Those with questions or concerns can contact officials at the water plant at (740) 535-9162.

Lane closure set in Brooke County

WELLSBURG — The West Virginia Division of Highways advises that today and Saturday, portions of 49 Hill Road and county Road 28, Apple Pie Ridge Road, will be restricted to one lane.

This closure will occur from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is necessary for MonPower to clear trees from power lines. Two-way traffic will be maintained in one lane by flaggers.

Motorists should reduce speed and expect delays in this area.

Inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances could change the project schedule.
