Work begins today to fix a huge road slip in Clay County, a project that is expected to take two weeks.

Contractors have arrived to fix the Cressmont Road problem.

The road was brought down to one lane earlier in the week.

"What we're looking at is only about 100 foot, but it's a pretty catastrophic failure," said Superintendent John Carmack of Geo Stabilization International, based out of Colorado, a company hired to fix the problem.

People who live in the area said a narrow road like this needs attention, although the West Virginia Department of Highways no longer performs such repair duties, the department dedicated to "core maintenance."
