State to hold virtual meeting about plans for WV9 between Berkeley Springs and Martinsburg

The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will hold an informational virtual public meeting on Thursday, March 4 for the WV 9 Planning and Environmental Linkages Study.

The study seeks to improve the east-west transportation link between Martinsburg and Berkeley Springs, will identify transportation needs in the corridor, and will conduct a preliminary assessment of alternatives to upgrade and/or relocate WV 9. The concepts evaluated will include new road construction as well as upgrades to existing WV 9.

This is a planning level workshop through which the WVDOH and the consultant team will present project information and seek public input regarding potential environmental and socioeconomic constraints within the project study area. The formal presentation will begin at 6 p.m. See below for meeting access information.

Those wishing to file written comments may send them on or before April 5 to: Mr. Elwood Penn, Director, Planning Division, West Virginia Division of Highways, 1900 Kanawha Boulevard, Building 5, Room 740, Charleston, West Virginia 25305.

    Guys I think it is great you all are having a planning meeting for this but this has been in the planning stages since early 2000. Do not let the state of WV be like VA where they hire parking lot engineers to design roads and always build after traffic is at a standstill.. Same with 81 soon it will be 3 lanes from 8mm to MD line. *more miles and the traffic holdups and stoppages could be blamed on VA and MD.
