BURNSVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Both lanes of Interstate 79 North and South are back open Friday in the Burnsville area after high water forced a portion of the road to close, dispatchers in Braxton County say.

Also in Burnsville, a portion of state Route 5 is shut down starting at the DOH building in Burnsville going toward Grantsville.

There is no word when the road will reopen.
