The middle path is through Charleston, where 3 interstate systems intersect. There are only a few hubs like that around the nation, where 3 or more interstates intersect.
81 also parallels 95 (north and south), but it has an insane amount of trucks.

Bad idea. Doesn't Mothman portend tragedy?

Looks like the Mason County Commissioners are doing their best to sink this development.

You have to spend money to make it.

Of course we would try to kill something this good for WV.

Why would we allow anything into our borders that would actually help us and diversify our economy? Come on now...we can't let that happen (sarcasm of course).

I'm beginning to lose sympathy for most of our problems. We're doing very little in most parts of the state to help ourselves.

Especially with the news earlier this week that the school enrollment for Mason County Schools is down. That means they're looking at a reduction of state funding in the range of $800k and that will force job cuts. So don't do anything to help build the tax base and bring in tourism. SMH
