WV State Police increase presence in dangerous work zone


BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — The West Virginia Turnpike expansion project in Beckley has made an eight mile stretch of the highway a construction zone, with a speed limit of 55. But even with the warning of doubled fines, drivers continue to speed.

The speeding is not only dangerous to the construction workers, who are now on site around the clock, but it is also dangerous to every driver passing through the narrow lanes.
