SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Heavy rain Saturday morning in Sissonville is to blame for a temporary hold put on a construction project.
“We had full intentions of coming to work today but all we got to work on is retrieving equipment,” said Byron Haggy who works at the construction site.
Since March, he and a group of others have worked on rebuilding the bridge that holds up the north and south bound lanes of Interstate 77, but Saturday that project was forced to hold.
Workers found one construction crane completely tilting on its side and other equipment swept away in the water when they arrived for work early Saturday morning.
“If it wasn't for the rain we would have been finishing up our caps, getting ready for our pedestals,” Haggy said, “we've achieved maybe 20 percent of what we would have got done today.”
Workers tell WSAZ.com construction on that site is expected to be finished by November.
