We’re continuing to follow a story in Mercer County with numerous residents expressing concerns about not receiving mail after a mudslide shut down parts of Route 112.
Jody Frazier lives on Ingleside Road and says he received mail for the first time today since the mudslide occurred in February.
The West Virginia Division of Highways started the cleanup and construction work on Ingleside Road last Thursday.
The portion of the road that’s cut off forces some residents to take Interstate 77 as an alternate route, which had some residents wanting answers as to why the United States Postal Service couldn’t do the same.
The U.S. Postal Service released a statement saying an onsite evaluation would be done to determine if the road is safe.
According to Frazier, the agency has delivered his mail today and he’s hopeful it will continue throughout the construction period.
