Corridor H Rolls Into Grant County

Corridor H, a long-awaited highway project in the state of West Virginia, officially rolled into Grant County on January 2021. The project, which began in the 1960s, was a major transportation route that connected the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia to the rest of the state and beyond.

There have been many developments in this project which have led to it finally leading to fruition. The most recent ones include a private partnership between Corridor H and the US 219 connector. In 2018, the program was given $20 million in federal funds.

The completion of the Corridor H project in Grant County marked a significant milestone in the overall construction of the highway. This section of the highway spanned almost 20 miles.

This includes multiple interchanges, bridges, and overpasses, as well as four-lane divided highways. The completion of this section of Corridor H has greatly improved the safety and efficiency of travel for residents and visitors in the area.

One of the biggest benefits of Corridor H for Grant County is economic development. The highway has opened up new opportunities for businesses and industries to locate in the area, creating jobs and boosting the local economy.

The improved transportation infrastructure has also made it easier for residents to access healthcare, education, and other services.

The completion of Corridor H in Grant County was celebrated by local officials and residents alike. The ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by Governor Jim Justice, marked the official opening of the highway to the public.

The event was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the many individuals and organizations that have been involved in the project over the years.

However, despite the project being completed, the overall project is still occurring. Construction is still underway on other sections of the highway, with the goal of completing the entire route from Winchester, Virginia, to Elkins, West Virginia.

Nevertheless, the completion of this section of the highway is a major step forward in connecting the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia to the rest of the state and beyond.
