BECKLEY, W.Va. — The West Virginia Turnpike's governing board could consider reopening showers for truckers at the Beckley plaza.
Turnpike Manager Greg Barr told a committee of the West Virginia Parkways Authority on Thursday that Marriott closed the special truckers' lounge after what he called "unsavory people" began to surface in the shower area.
The Register-Herald (http://bit.ly/GMASkJ ) reports that Barr said that the plaza had difficulty getting rid of such people.
But board members discussed the possible reopening as an amenity for truck drivers. The issue likely will come up when the full authority holds its monthly meeting in April.
