FRAZIERS’ BOTTOM, W.Va. — The governor’s office says the new 14.6 mile four-lane section of U.S. Route 35 will open to traffic for the first time on Veterans Day.
An 11:30 ceremony is scheduled for next Thursday morning in Putnam County. Officials said the ceremony will also honor veterans and their families.
The completion of the project means Route 35 will be four lane road from Point Pleasant to the its intersection with Interstate 64 near Scott Depot in Putnam County.
The project, which is part of Gov. Jim Justice’s Roads to Prosperity program, cost $257 million to complete. It includes 10 bridges and a new interchange near the Buffalo Bridge.
