Authority Celebrates Completion of Corridor H Segment

Corridor H

The Robert C. Byrd Corridor H Highway Authority is celebrating the completion of a segment of the road near the Tucker-Grant county line.

The authority scheduled a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday.

The new section runs about 3 miles and is part of an ongoing project to complete Corridor H between Mount Storm and near Davis.

Authority president Robbie Morris told The Inter-Mountain that the section is the first completed portion of Corridor H in Tucker County.

Corridor H is the only section of the Appalachian Corridor system that hasn’t been finished. When it is completed, it will connect Interstate 79 near Weston with the junction of Interstates 81 and 66 in Front Royal, Virginia.
