Three Sections of Corridor H to Open Next Month
Three sections of the Corridor H project will open in November, and former Secretary for the Department of Transportation Samuel H. Beverage, Senator Michael Ross and Delegate Allen Evans were in Elkins in late October to survey the progress of nine active sections of the Corridor H project.

Members of the local media were invited to join them for a first look at the completed sections and an update on the each of the remaining segments still under construction.

The first three projects, connecting Route 33 to Route 1 near 219, are expected to open for public use next month. Vecellio & Grogan, Trumbull Corporation and J.F. Allen Company are the contractors responsible for grading, draining and paving the segments totaling 3.6 miles and costing $67.2 million.

The following photos illustrate the completed sections of the road.

The other six projects are expected to open in November 2001. When complete, these segments will connect Elkins to Kerens, W.Va.
