Corridor H cuts through some of West Virginia’s highlands. That has made some of the construction a challenge.
Members of the public may weigh in on a key section of construction on Corridor H at an upcoming event.
The West Virginia Division of Highways will have a public information workshop on Sept. 12 to focus on 10 miles of construction between Parsons and Davis.
While much of Corridor H, cutting through West Virginia’s highlands to the Virginia state line, has been completed, this is a particularly hilly and windy section of the route.
The workshop will be from 4 to 7 p.m. that day at the Blackwater Falls State Park conference room at 1584 Blackwater Falls Road in Tucker County.
The focus will be on the construction of 10 miles of four-lane highway through the West Virginia mountains.
The Division of Highways does not plan its own presentation. Members of the public may ask questions and submit written comments. A handout with project details will be available at the meeting and on the highways department’s website.
Another major portion of the highway between Kerens and Parsons is expected to be completed in 2024. That would complete the highway’s construction all the way from Weston, where it connects with Interstate 79, to Parsons.
An earlier public meeting, held August 18, focused on an unfinished section from Wardensville to the Virginia line.
Corridor H is part of the Appalachian Development Highway System, which includes 23 corridors to connect to the interstate highway system.
