The road that connects Vienna to the interstate will not run thru Parkersburg. It will start at the intersection of Rosemar Rd and 46th St and run through that valley northward to the new intersection just built at Emerson Ave/I-77.

I'm disappointed in Ms. Coram as a councilwoman. I think that old school boots on the ground,knocking on doors,driving around your district you represent and engaging with your constituents is the only way go. Build a foundation with the people. Get to know them and most of all listen to their concerns. No matter how trivial. The agenda should be that of the people and nothing more.

I would be interested in seeing how these types of projects do in other cities. I know a bike lane was put through St. Albans along state route 60 at a cost of nearly $3 million that is rarely used.

If there is a need shown for such projects, I am for them but if it's a waste of money, I don't see why we should throw good money after bad when we currently have so many other needs.

The one area the cities of Parkersburg and Vienna should be collaborating on is a suitable road from I-77, down town and Grand Central Ave.

For me, deviating traffic from narrow roads that wind through residential areas is more urgent than creating a bike path.

Those who voted for her should have looked at her past and the answers would have been right there.

If they want rails and trails, then let those that use them pay for it. Adding city and county paid positions to access property and then develop it are all presented as upward and onward activities. They are in fact future burdens on all constituents for the enjoyment of relatively few. It is Ohhh so easy to spend monies other than your own.

She was elected for her district and she has done NOTHING.. but stick her nose in on this stupid trail. Fix issues in your district for which you were hired.. If Not.. the district just might have to get someone who will. Boy, what a mistake this poor district made, you never had any intentions to help them, you had your own agenda and it is obvious what that was and is. Bike trails and other trails are no use to people who don't walk them or can't walk them and the same for bikes.. come on get real. Do your job!!
