I-70 construction to continue through the weekend

HANCOCK COUNTY — Road construction is planned to continue through the weekend on Interstate 70.

The right lane of westbound I-70 will be closed approaching Mt. Comfort Road, at exit 96, starting at 9 p.m. Friday and will remain closed until 6 a.m. Monday as crews install drainage structures.

During that time, westbound I-70 will be reduced to one open lane for about three miles, from mile marker 100 to mile marker 97.
