W.Va. DOH Aware of Pothole Causing Blowouts at East Huntington I-64 Exit

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Sitting on the side of Interstate 64 in Huntington, Lyndon Graham realized he was a long way from his Pennsylvania home.

Unfortunately, his trip was interrupted by an unscheduled pit stop.

"It was scary; I hit it hard," Graham said, referring to a pothole he hit in the eastbound lanes of I-64 near the 29th Street exit (Exit 15). "It was like I hit the hole, and the car started shaking because the tire went flat."

Several disabled vehicles could be found off the snowy shoulder of the interstate because of that problem -- a problem the West Virginia Department of Highways is familiar with.

In a tweet, Cabell County 911 send out a message. "Crews are back from treating snow. Heading out to patch pothole soon."

Tia Searls worked an early morning shift Monday, only to get home to a sidewalk that needed to be shoveled.

"I need salt, which is something I should have picked up, yesterday," Searls said. "I want to get this cleared away before it freezes Monday night."
