Division of Highways employees Matt Reed, left, and Rick White work to install an overflow culvert at the corner of Robert C. Byrd Drive and Main Street in Sophia. Raleigh County DOH supervisor Jeff Lilly said the 48-inch pipe will serve as an overflow for existing drains in the area plagued by problems with water backup and flooding. Because the job involves working around and relocating several utilities, including fiber optic cable, DOH workers are on site to contribute additional technical knowledge. Lilly said the project could be completed as early as this week.
