BACKGROUND: Early in February, the WV Division of Highways and Federal Highway Administration informed the public that the official environmental review process for the Parsons to Davis Section of Corridor H has begun. 

This review must include an analysis of alternate routes. In this case, the Revised Original Preferred Alternative (ROPA) and the Blackwater Avoidance Alternative 2 (Northern Route). You can learn more about their evaluation and preparation of this environmental review—as well as what is and is not being considered—in the latest newsletter from the Go North Corridor H Alliance.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD: The WV Division of Highways is accepting public comments on the project until March 27, 2024. The most effective comments are likely to address the impacts of one route versus the other. 

The Allegheny-Blue Ridge Alliance has created a great resource featuring an interactive map to illustrate the impacts of the proposed routings on communities and the environment.

Comments can be made in person at the meeting, online, or by mail. View the WV Division of Highways’ notice and make your comment here
