Motorists traveling the West inia Turnpike will be seeing some nsive changes shortly, geared to roving accomodations at the rvice Areas and to enhance the ppearance of the facilities. .... The West Virginia Turnpike ission is spending approximately 50,000 to double the restroom modations at each of the Service Areas as well as give the exterior of the buildings a new facelifl.

Mclntyre said what has served as the office of the service station at the Glass House in Becldey is being converted into restrooms and at the Bluestone and Morton Service Areas, the wash hays are being converted for the same purpose. "By building separate restroom facilities, we will be able to improve the frequency of maintenance and cleaning of these areas. We will be able to close one section for cleaning and still have another open to the public. Before we started this upgrading, it was extremely difficult to give the kind of maintenance attention we desired, simply because these restrooms are open 24 hours a day, and you can't close them and prevent. the traveling public from havin roll access to them," Mclntyre said. Another reason for the upgrading has been the incrpasing amount of traffic flow, Mchtyre said. noting that the "annum traffic count using the restrooms is more than double the population of West Virginia. We want to keep these facilities updated to handle the needs of the motorists and at the same time keep the appearance as attractive as possible. McIntyre said the project is part of a phased program that has been in effect for four years. "'We built new storage areas in the Morton and Bluestone facilities to increase the food preparation capacity of the restaur- ants: at Beckley we refurbished the dining areas; at Bluestone we now have a new water treatment facility going, which should be completed by the end of May; at Morton we are changing the water chlorination system from liquid to gas", he continued. "Last year, we installed new partitions in the restrooms; two years earlier we installed new wash basins, counter tops and toilets. Actually, for the last four years, the rental fees the JOHN G. WOLFE Democrat For Magistrate Commission has received from the concessions have been plowed back into improving the service capacity and physical appearance of the Service areas," Mclntyre said.
