Scrape, cinder Halls Ridge Road

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — I live on Halls Ridge Road and have for more than 17 years. The road isn’t bad up to Johnson’s Chapel Church, but after that the road has knolls that are blind and the road is very full of turns and dips.

The West Virginia Department of Highways will scrape up to the church then turn around there. A lot of people live past the church. A lot of people have to miss work due to the fact that the road past the church is so bad when it snows. 

Why, is my question and one of all who live past the church, do you not scrape and cinder the rest of Halls Ridge Road? I complain every year along with a lot of others and it is the same thing every year. If you can scrape and cinder to the church then you can come out past it, too. My tax dollars are the same as the church’s tax dollars.
