New Stoplights in Inwood Area Coming

There is a 4 fold process in place; and I have been pushing the first parts of it since I took office in January 2013. Depsite some contrary belief, there were NO traffic studies ordered prior to mine according to the Dept. of Highways in Charleston WV. So in January, first act of business was getting those studies conducted. Here is the Status:

Effective August 2013–The contract will be awarded to widen; place a turning lane; and the installation of a stoplight at the intersection of Runnymeade Road and Route 11. The work will be completed within 90 days of the award date.

Effective June 2013–The contract will be awarded to widen; place a turning right lane; and installation of a stoplight at the intersection of Sulphur Springs Road and Route 51. The work will be completed within 90 days of the award date.

No worries, we are not stopping there folks. We have the plans, land, and reports needed for the bypass as well in place. In addition, we are working on a ENTRY ramping system on Runnymeade Road.

The final result will not be a bandaid on a gash; however a long term solution. The final part to be completed in three to four years (yes, please re-elect me, so the ball dont get dropped any further), will consist of fixing and making the roads more user friendly on the Runnymeade and Giles Mill Road areas. After that point, our infastructure system should be intact and not overburdened for a period again of no less than 20 years. This is with the exception of potholes and minor surface repairs and such.

Sometimes it is what goes on behind the scenes that people dont always see. This is one of those issues. And I am happy and honored to be able to dedicate myself to tackling those issues.
