64th Anniversary of WV Turnpike Groundbreaking Marked

West Virginia Public Broadcasting marks the 64th anniversary of the West Virginia Turnpike’s groundbreaking, noting that, “The state’s only toll road eventually cut driving time between Charleston and Princeton from four hours to two.” The report adds, “Although state officials have long debated removing the road’s tollbooths, the tolls remain in place more than 60 years later as a way to defray maintenance costs and generate other revenues.”
