WSAV TV reports on a particular road in Cross Lanes, WV that has gotten so bad, that the emergency vehicles can no longer make it back to the 12 homes located on the road.
It’s a private road meaning the Department of Highways isn’t responsible for fixing it, but the road is now so dangerous that Kanawha County has submitted an application to the Department of Homeland Security, for emergency repairs.
Pine Terrace Drive has been slipping away for a few weeks, but in the last few days it has fallen about 8 inches. Now the land underneath part of the road is completely washed out, bending and exposing a gas line and that’s not the only danger, 12 families live beyond this slip and this road is their only way in and out.
The road is also falling right into a creek and home below.
Pine Terrace Drive is so unstable fire trucks and ambulances have now been told its too dangerous to try and drive across.
The county has submitted an application to the Department of Homeland Security for emergency repairs, that will now go onto West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin for his approval.
