Traffic Counts Now Being Taken In All 55 Counties In State CHARLESTON -- The West Virginia Department of High- ways' summer traffic count is on for 1978! Traffic counts will be made on primary highways in all of West Virginia's 55 counties and also on secondary roads and high- ways in nine counties. Traffic counts, which are conducted to determine the type and amount of traffic on West Virginia's roadways, began in early June. Counts will be made by mechanical traffic recorders and Department of Highways employees. The information gained through the traffic counts will assist Department of High- ways designers in planning for future improvements and repairs to the roadway system. To cut costs, traffic counting on interstates will be done by mechanical traffic recorders rather than the traditional method of Department of High- ways employees, except at a few control stations. Information gained in previous counts has revealed that accurate counts can be obtained on the in- terstates through the use of the mechanical recorders. This information will be sup- plemented by data collected by Department of Highways em- ployees at the control stations. Control station counts will be made at 38 locations throughout the state on all highway systems. Department of High- ways employees will make SUMMER PROGRAM AT LEETOWN PARK NOW UNDERWAY The Summer program at the Leetown Park is now underway and picture shows some of the youngsters who have been participating in daily programs began June 19 under the direction of Barbara Bennett J.
