Division of Highways awards bid for paving Hobet mine access road

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Mingo Company has received a $4.3 million contract for pacing an access road into a former Boone County mine site.

The West Virginia Division of Highways on Friday announced S&E Clearing & Hydroseeding Inc. will be responsible for paving approximately three mines of access road leading to the former Hobet mine location, which is set to be developed into an economic development project known as Rock Creek Development Park.

The effort includes resurfacing the existing roadway into Hobet and laying new pavement on top of the mountain.

The plan also includes a diamond intersection at Corridor G and Rock Creek; crews will build bridges over Corridor G and crossing the CSX rail line and the Little Coal River. The interchange will cost an estimated $25 million. The Division of Highways estimates construction will take up to three years to complete.
