HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Along I-64, a snowy Sunday morning made for difficult driving. Plows kept the sidewalks clear at a rest area on the interstate for drivers who stopped to wait out the weather.
“Everybody, please be careful out there,” Bob Green, the maintenance supervisor for the rest stop between the 5th Street and Hal Greer exits, said.
Green said while he’s a Detroit native and is used to snow, he urges drivers to be cautious.
“This ain't nothing really. We don't have no hills in Detroit, you know, but you got to be extra cautious down here. A little grade or something, you could lose control in a heartbeat,” Green said.
Green said many drivers don’t like to stop in bad weather and prefer to continue driving in order to reach their destinations as quickly as possible. Still, he said, his job ensures they can take a break safely.
“Trying to plow, if it'll let up a little bit I can do something, but we're just trying to keep it down for right now,” Green said as he prepared to plow the same section of sidewalk over and over. “When it lightens up, then we can salt, make sure the motorists [are] safe walking around here.”
