MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — A county schools superintendent in West Virginia says road conditions in his area are so bad that “somebody’s going to get killed” if improvements aren’t made.
The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register reports Marshall County Schools Superintendent Jeffrey Crook made a plea for improvements during a town hall meeting Wednesday night in Moundsville.
Crook says road conditions are so bad that the school system might have to consider closing some impassable bus routes. He asked elected officials to look into road slippages that “are getting so bad and so dangerous.”
Some speakers put the blame for the wear-and-tear on trucks from natural gas pipeline companies.
Local Division of Highways maintenance assistant Justin Cain says the division is trying to better coordinate complaints about road conditions and what agencies are handling them.
