Congressman Nick Rahall, right, D-W.Va., offered his support to a project that will help to increase safety at the new Huff Consolidated Elementary and Middle School Monday. The intersection to the new school, on U.S. Rt. 52, is unsafe for two buses to meet, and the railroad crossing only adds to the problems, according to county Schools Superintendent Frank Blackwell, left. Plans are to widen the road for increased traffic, including school buses, staff and parents. Also crossing lights and safety guards will be added at the railroad tracks, according to officials. The new school is expected to open in August.
