The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) District 9 is accepting applications for non-profit organizations to provide Safety Breaks at the Interstate 64 Welcome Center near White Sulphur Springs.

To qualify, groups must be non-profit with identifiable safety programs targeting bicycle, automotive, pedestrian, ATV, or other transportation, or participate in the Adopt-A-Highway Program. The activity must be conducted for the express promotion of safety and not as an advertisement or solicitation for funds for the organization.
