Corridor H Environment
Walnut Bottom Wetland Replacement Site
The West Virginia Division of Highways recognizes the importance of the environment in our daily lives. This section of the website will focus on subjects such as wetlands; streams; rare, threatened and endangered species; forest fragmentation; wildlife and environmental monitors. Wetlands and streams will be the focus this week. But stay tuned to this section of the website because information on the other subjects will be posted soon.

WVDOH has joined with environmental scientists and consultant stream biologists in order to protect and improve the wetlands and streams along the proposed Corridor H route. Together they have designed and contracted two large multifaceted wetlands within the Monongahela River watershed and the Potomac River watershed. To avoid enclosing 3,760 feet of streams, they concluded that four additional bridges and four open bottom culverts were needed. These steps were taken to protect our resources because the WVDOH is committed to developing an environmentally sensitive highway. For more information, click on wetlands and streams.
