Timeline for Parsons to Davis/Thomas
To keep you abreast of the progress on this portion of Corridor H, below is a timeline developed by the West Virginia Division of Highways for the work on the Blackwater Canyon segment from Parsons to Thomas and Davis.

This timeline illustrates a tentative schedule for the progress and development of the Parsons to Davis-Thomas section of Corridor H. The timeline includes estimated dates for key milestones for the project and the steps necessary to secure approval of state and federal agencies preserving historic sites around the battlefield.

On the Timeline there are approximate time periods for Public Information Workshops. These will preserve periodic opportunities for public input as the process proceeds. All public meetings were advertised well in advance, including on this web site, and the results of the meetings will be reported here and through mass media.
