A widening of Interstate 64 in Huntington to six lanes will be completed next spring.

The $18 million project included replacing an overpass and widening about 4 miles of the in

  terstate in both directions from the 29th Street exit to the Hal Greer Boulevard exit.

Division of Highways spokeswoman Carrie Bly and district engineer Chris Collins tell The Herald-Dispatch the project is "substantially complete." Crews still need to lay a final layer of asphalt and install guardrails.

Collins says the DOH hopes to resume work in late March or early April.

A 50 mile-per-hour speed limit will remain in effect. Collins says the highway is technically still an active work zone.
