West Virginia roads continue to be a topic of concern as another local community declares a state of emergency.
Hancock County commissioners made the announcement in hopes of getting the attention of the state.
Not long ago, the county was awarded $19 million as part of the governor’s Roads to Prosperity Project.
But according to commissioners, little improvements have been made to roads in the area. So yesterday, the commissioners declared a state of emergency for the primary and secondary roads in the area.
The state of emergency will remain in effect until the county receives a response from authorities in Charleston.
