Because of this timetable, the West Virginia Division of Highways (DOH) has developed alternate routes and detours to accommodate long-distance travelers. These detours will last from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Motorists who normally use U.S. 19 as a shortcut from Interstate 77 at Beckley to Interstate 79 will instead be routed on to Charleston, where they will pick up Interstate 79. This routing will add time to the normal trip.
