LOGAN, W.Va. — A road connecting a state park and a conference center in southern West Virginia will be open to traffic Monday.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, state Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette and state Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox are scheduled to officially open the road connecting Chief Logan Conference Center and Chief Logan State Park in a 10:30 a.m. ceremony. Before the completion of the new road, U.S. Route 119 has been the connecting road between the two properties.

After that ceremony, Tomblin is scheduled to attend the official ceremony reintroducing elk into West Virginia. That’s scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at the Tomblin Wildlife Management Area in Logan.
