Marshall County Roads Taking a Beating From Gas Drilling Traffic

Posted: Updated:

Cameron Mayor Julie Beresford says that roads around her city are taking a beating from natural gas drilling-related truck traffic.

Marshall County Delegate David Evans says he supports the Marcellus Shale drilling boom, but both he and Beresford say they're concerned about the effects of constant truck traffic on local roads. Evans says he will continue to push for the state to do something to ensure that roads damaged by drilling-related truck traffic are repaired in a timely manner.
