Division of Highways crews were busy all day Tuesday because of the storm. Everyone was on the roads and they will be throughout the duration of the storm.

One of the biggest problems was the area between Cheat Lake and Maryland. The Division of Highways was sending extra trucks that way to get the road reopened.
The amount and type of snow we had created a mountain of problems.
"And the problem is the wet snow. It's really hard to get off the road and it's really heavy. As it continues to snow, you might plow, you know, 15 miles up to a truck and you're dealing with him and trying to get him out and get him straightened out, you're dealing with 45 minutes, you look behind you and it's covered again. It's a non-ending project to get the roads opened up," said Division of Highways District Manager Greg Phillips.

Crews also stayed in places like Harrison County where there wasn't much snow to pre-treat the roads just in case.
