Work to start on next section of Corridor H

DAVIS, W.Va. — A groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Monday in Tucker County for work on the next section of Corridor H.

The new section of highway will connect Davis in Tucker County to Scherr in Grant County.

The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. Monday.  The event is part of the Corridor H Authority’s meeting at Canaan Valley Institute.

Corridor H will eventually cover 130 miles between Interstate 79 at Weston in Lewis County and Interstate 81 in Front Royal, Va.  It is scheduled to be finished by 2034.

By the end of this year, officials say 75 percent of the road will be finished in West Virginia.

The highway was first proposed in 1964.
