Cameron, WV Mayor Julie Beresford says roads around her city are taking a pounding from natural gas drilling-related truck traffic.

Both Beresford and Marshall County Delegate David Evans say they support the Marcellus Shale drilling boom. But they tell The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register  that they're concerned about the effects of constant truck traffic on roads.

Evans says he will continue to push for the state to do something to ensure that roads damaged by drilling-related truck traffic are repaired in a timely manner.

Beresford says a more structured monitoring of roads is needed to ensure they are repaired.
