CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - It's time for West Virginians to weigh in on the state's roads and how to pay for them.

The West Virginia Blue Ribbon Highway Commission is holding nine public hearings around the state in July and August.

Officials will outline the findings so far from the nearly yearlong study of state road conditions, needs and future funding options. The public can comment at the meeting, though a suggestion box and by filling out a survey.

The survey will also be available online, via a website launching later this week: www.WVBRC.com .

The hearings run July 11 through Aug. 15 in Beckley, Elkins, Fairmont, Huntington, Logan, Martinsburg, Parkersburg, Princeton and Wheeling.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appointed the 25-member commission last year. He says public comments will shape the study's final report.
