A community is concerned as rocks, mud and trees dangle over their road. 

Friday Delegate Tim Armstead called a meeting with residents who live along Blue Creek in the Elkview, WV area.

A small group of residents gathered in a parking lot at the end of the road to share their concerns.

Officials from the West Virginia Division of Highways also attended to try to answer some of their questions. Earlier this month a slide blocked the road. School buses are no longer running on the road because of concerns about safety. Residents had a clear message that something needs to be done to address the problem.

“I suppose this was a big enough issue and I am thankful they came here professionally and said here is what we have here is what we are going to do,” said resident India McClanahan. “It is good that we have candor and I was very appreciative of it.”

The Chief Highway Engineer said the source of the problem is a road that was cut on top of the hill. He said the state has been in contact with TransCanada, the company who put in that road, to try to find a way to correct the issue.
