Route 22/322 reopens after rock removal near Newport

Local

A section of Route 22/322 in Perry County has reopened after two weeks of work to remove loose rock from a cliff face.

The westbound lanes of 22/322 west of Newport reopened over the weekend.

The roadway had been closed since March 18 while the unstable rock was removed. There was concern that the loose rocks or portions of the slope could fall onto the highway.
