New Visitor's Center Proposed on I-64
"It's not the design of the interstate," Williams explained. He cited improper planning for the city's inability to "take advantage" of the ten million plus vehicles passing causing a "continued decline" by not channeling traffic more advantageously into Huntington. "We are a quarter mile from the river and we are dying of thirst," Williams told council members.
The proposed rest stop would be at the Kenova exit, Williams said. All other interstates that enter the Mountain State have superior information and tourism facilities within miles of the entrance.
Williams plans to join Kenova Mayor Dick Griffith and others in telling Governor Tomblin that "we deserve" a replacement to the current "substandard" facility at the eight mile marker.
Council woman Joyce Clark said the proposed new welcoming center would be "useful to the entire area," adding that it could bring additional visitors to Camden Park.
