Road weary

June 2, 2009 - Heather Ziegler
I was so happy to read the signs that said "Rough Road Ahead." I thought, finally, the state agrees that part of GC&P Road, especially in Greggsville, are so pitted and uneven! Alas, it was a short-lived joy. The signs were merely pointing out that crews had rotomilled two sections of the road, and not even the really bad section. Maybe they plan on getting to that but with those big trucks traveling the road every day to the landfill, I don't think the road will ever be in good shape. I don't know much about road work, but I know that when they did pave the portion of GC&P Road in Greggsville years ago, they put in drains that now your tires drop into and you nearly break a tooth at the jolt! Can someone please remedy that?? And what's with the road work on W.Va. 2 south? I understand the state is replacing the median wall. What, may I ask, goes bad with a median wall. It's concrete. It's ugly. But that's what its supposed to be. And I can't imagine spending money to replace when it is what is it. Especially when there are roads in the Northern Panhandle not fit for horse travel let alone vehicles. Have you taken a look at some of the underpasses on I-70 in Ohio County. There's an awful lot of rust and decay going on that needs attention. If we have to endure the orange barrels, let it be for projects that make a difference.
