Work on Clearing Roads Continues in Cabell County

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Many roads remain snow covered Monday night.

Gary McCoy is the Assistant County Superintendent with the Department of Highways in Cabell County.

They work on all county and state roads in Cabell County, including 3rd and 5th Avenues in Huntington, parts of which remained covered with snow and slush Monday night.

McCoy says they plowed those roads Sunday night, but more snowfall left those avenues with another coating.

"With the amount of lanes down there, we try to get at least one or two lanes open so they can get the main routes going into Huntington open," McCoy said.

McCoy said they still have lots of secondary and backroads left to get to. He says they should have enough salt, for now.

"Our supplies are dwindling,” he said. “They're getting low, but we have enough for this storm here. Hopefully there won't be any more."

McCoy says they have eight plow and salt truck drivers on the roads overnight Monday in Cabell County. Another shift will be in at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
