PRINCETON — Division of Highways officials say a Mercer County road closed for three days has reopened.

West Virginia DOH District 10 Manager Tom Camden said Rogers Street opened at 3 p.m.

“The nothing has changed,” Camden said. “The height level on the bridge has not changed. The speed limit has not change. We do remind people to be aware of the clearance of that bridge in light of what happened.”

Rogers Street was closed Monday after an excavator being hauled on a flatbed trailer struck the railroad trestle and damaged the structure.
