Wheeling, W.Va. (AP) -- Traffic soon will be moving again through the Wheeling tunnel's eastbound tube.

The West Virginia Division of Highways plans to reopen the tube on Thursday.

It's been closed since Sept. 8 for renovation work.

DOH project engineer Dustin Neely says some electrical work and painting will continue after the tube opens but traffic won't be affected.

Ahern and Associates of Charleston will begin renovating the westbound tube next year.

As part of the $6.7 million contract, the company addressed issues with the eastbound tunnel that weren't completed by a previous contractor.
