DescriptionAt present practically no wooden guardrail posts are being installed along West Virginia's highways. Neither are concrete posts. Only steel posts are being used in new highway construction despite the fact that wooden posts that have been properly treated with a decay-preventing preservative are entirely acceptable to the State Highway Department. Furthermore, treated wooden posts are reported to provide as good or better service than posts made of steel or concrete (1, 2, 3).
