Gov. Justice directs Division of Highways to repair roads in Preston County


​CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice has directed the Division of Highways to immediately form a rapid response team to address road conditions in Preston County.
“After Delegate Teri Sypolt, House Majority Leader Amy Summers, other legislators, and county officials brought to my attention the seriousness of this issue, I directed the Division of Highways to send an engineer to Preston County to determine road conditions and based on that report I decided that immediate action was needed,” Gov. Justice said.
“I want the people of North Central West Virginia to know that their complaints have not gone unnoticed and that we will get to the bottom of this problem and correct it.”
A team of DOH officials including Secretary of Transportation/Commissioner of Highways Tom Smith are on the ground in the area today and will remain there until a plan of action is in place. The West Virginia National Guard has also offered their support to the Division of Highways.​
