PHOTOS: Demolition underway along Jefferson Road

Crews this week began tearing down houses near Jefferson Road, in South Charleston, as part of a planned expansion project aimed at alleviating traffic congestion along the route between MacCorkle Avenue and Corridor G.

Included in the project is the widening of Jefferson Road, construction of an overpass bridge where Jefferson Road intersects with Kanawha Turnpike, and creation of a roundabout beneath the overpass.

The project is expected to be completed in late 2022.
