An open house public meeting on the proposed U.S. 522 Berkeley Springs Bypass and Fairview Connector Project will be discussed by the West Virginia Division of Highways (DOH) this Thursday, April 19 at Berkeley Springs High School.
Representatives from the DOH and the Federal Highway Administration will be available between 4-7 p.m. to discuss the project and answer questions.
There will be no formal presentation, but project maps and other materials will be available.
The project proposes to construct the bypass and the Fairview connector. The project is to begin at Winchester Grade Road to Sandmine Road including a connector from U.S. 522 to Fairview Drive (near War Memorial Hospital) for a distance of about four miles.
The bypass will be a four-lane, controlled access expressway with a grassed median and a design speed of 65 mph, according to the West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) website.
Information about the project is posted on the West Virginia DOH website, and comments can be submitted through that website (http://go.wv.gov/dotcomment) and by mail through Monday, May 21.
