Months to Repair Tunnel

The Virginian railway, which had been operating trains through Bluefield since Monday, was able yesterday to send them via a temporary bridge thrown across the river at Kelleysville [sic] to Princeton. It is expected that it will be some months before the road will cease using the Norfolk and Western tracks between Norcross and Kelleysville, as it will be several months before the Hale Gap tunnel, which collapsed last Monday morning, can be repaired. The tunnel is located between Glen Lyn and Kelleysville.
