U.S. 22 construction finishes early in Weirton

Updated: Thursday, August 28 2014, 11:52 PM EDT
WEIRTON, W.Va. -- No more orange barrels. No more detours. The construction on U.S. 22 through Weirton is complete.
The project wrapped up about a month early -- a huge sigh of relief for those who travel along that stretch.
It's also a welcomed change for area businesses.
"We're very grateful that they did that and we're very grateful that they're finished,” said business owner Gus Monezis. “Yes it absolutely had an effect on our business, but that’s the price of progress sometimes."
For the next few days crews will be doing some clean up. One day next week, they will also be installing new reflectors on the roads, but officials say that should not affect traffic.
