Corridor H is On the Fast Track
U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia signed the Corridor H mediation agreement in February 2000. The agreement allows for construction to begin on Corridor H immediately.

The West Virginia Division of Highways has resumed construction on Corridor H in the Elkins area. The following photos illustrate their current efforts.

Corridor H (US 33) construction work just east of Aggregates.
Contractors work atop what will be the County Route 14 Interchange Bridge.
Safety is one of the major reasons Corridor H is being constructed. Existing State Route 55 is a two-lane road with a 5 percent grade and switchback curves. The posted speed on many curves is 15 mph.
This section of the proposed alignment crosses State Route 55 just beyond Hanging Rock. It now exists as a two-lane road with many blind curves and no shoulders.
This section of the proposed alignment is at the Corridor H crossing near the river sink on Lost River.

Stay tuned to the web site for additional information as design and construction on Corridor H continues.
