Road crews from the WVDOH prepare for winter driving season


(WVVA)- The West Virginia Division of Highways is preparing its road crews for the upcoming winter driving season.

Crews in district 10, which includes Raleigh, Mercer, McDowell, and Wyoming counties will be spending this week checking their equipment to make sure everything is working properly.

New plow and salt truck drivers will be using this time to familiarize themselves with their routes and the equipment they will be using, most of which is automated to improve efficiency.

The DOH's winter driving season begins in November and runs through March.
