Our state’s roads and bridges are in horrible shape; there’s no denying it. A recent report, in fact, ranked West Virginia second in the nation for the highest percentage of bridges that are structurally deficient.
Just days ago, the Marshall County Commission recently declared a countywide State of Emergency due to the condition of the primary and secondary roads caused by years of neglect, are a threat to the health, safety, welfare, and property of local residents.
Many of our roads are close to being impassable by emergency crews and school buses and are quickly becoming a hazard to the traveling public as well.
Governor Justice just vetoed two bills passed during the 2019 legislative session that dealt directly with road repairs and funding.
Tell the Governor you demand immediate action. Tell him to fix our roads and bridges.
