WVDOH pulled a similar stunt a couple years ago, citizens in the affected community banded together, contacted both lawyers their politicians. When they pointed out the time difference it took first responders to reach the people and homes that were being affected. (Their "Golden Hour" was cut nearly in half.) Their road became a top priority. Somebody found the money and time real quick. Temporary repairs were made eliminate the additional risk while permanent repairs quickly got under way.
