A slip on Pine Creek Hill above the town of Grantsville has created one-way traffic on the already narrow road. Joe Webb, Assistant Road Supervisor with the Calhoun highway department, said the district office was notified and he expects either piling or a cut deeper into the hill will be done to help with the problem.

Slip is on steep Pine Creek Hill

Road drops straight down on slip side

Webb said the project was "too big" for the local WVDOH office to start, and district people have looked at the problem.

The narrow, winding and steep highway starts at the edge of Grantsville and provides access to several families on the hill and lower Pine Creek. The steep grade and crooked highway did receive some "blacktop" a few years ago, but has remained much the same for nearly 100 years.
