Mason County residents to get update on road work

POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — The condition of secondary roads continues to be one of the biggest issues county leaders in West Virginia are dealing with these days. Gov. Jim Justice and the state Division of Highways have been trying to answer the overwhelming call for roads to be fixed.

Mason County Commission President Rick Handly is hoping members of the public will come out during a Wednesday meeting to hear from local DOH leadership about the progress in his county.

“They do want input and this is your time to come in and tell them,” said Handley in a recent edition of MetroNews “Talkline.”

Handley said DOH District 1 Engineer Travis Knighton and Mason County Highways Supervisor Ernie Waterson will be on hand fort he meeting.

Handley received a list of priority roads from the agency which are getting the attention first.

“I posted that list to Facebook and started getting all kinds of response from people saying, ‘How about our road? Our road is not on that list,'” Handley said.

The meeting is at 10 a.m. Wednesday and has been moved to the main courtroom at the Mason County Courthouse.
