CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Two busy roadways in southern West Virginia and the Northern Panhandle will be studied by state engineers to determine whether changes are needed to improve safety.
Media outlets report that the Division of Highways plans to conduct traffic studies on Interstate 70 near The Highlands shopping development in Ohio County and the intersection of U.S. 52 and State Route 123 in Mercer County.
The DOH reduced the speed limit on a section of I-70 from 70 to 65 miles per hour in April 2011. Ohio County officials say the speed limit should be reduced further to prevent accidents.
West Virginia State Police Sgt. D.W. Miller says multiple wrecks have occurred at the intersection in Mercer County.
