The final day to submit comments to the West Virginia Division of Highways concerning the two remaining unfinished sections of Corridor H—the ten-mile section from Parsons to Davis and the 6.8-mile section from Wardensville to the Virginia state line—is Friday, Jan. 6 at 5 p.m.
Comments can be submitted online at http://go.wv.gov/dotcomment or by on or before Jan. 6 by mail to:
Travis Long, Director, Technical Support Division
1334 Smith Street
Charleston, West Virginia 25301
On page 8, Hugh Rogers provided a synopsis of comments provided by the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy, Corridor H Alternatives, West Virginia Rivers Coalition and the Friends of the Cheat. The full comments submitted by each organization can be viewed at wvhighlands.org/highways, along with more information proposed and alternate routes and articles from previous issues of The Highlands Voice.
It is best to express your concerns in your own voice, but the educational resources provided on our webpage give a thorough overview of the history of the Corridor H project, previous violations, threats to environmental integrity and health.
The West Virginia Highlands Conservancy continues to monitor progress of the forty-year Corridor H project and other massive highway projects that threaten to destroy and fragment the highlands of West Virginia.
