The West Virginia Department of Transportation has offered the following detours as a result of this explosion.
Will be detoured at Ripley: WV Route 62 to US 35 then to I-64 at Parkersburg: US 50 to Clarksburg to I-79
I-79 to Clarksburg then to US 50

I was on that section of road 24 hours before it exploded coming back from Chesapeake, Ohio to Parkersburg, WV.
