West Virginia has the 6th largest road system in the nation, with 93% of all state roadways as part of the state system. In 2013, 75% of the 332 traffic-related fatalities were roadway departure crashes (the national average is 57%), and nearly 85% of those were off the interstate system, more than 70% of fatalities in rural locations. Redirected traffic often has to bear significant delays, if appropriate detour routes are even available to all traffic.

These two pieces of information made the need clear for improved incident management to increase mobility and improve driver and responder safety. This Lesson Learned outlines the state’s creative approach to garnering needed funds to address this issue.
