One of the two remaining pieces of Corridor H will be the subject of a public meeting.

The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will make a public presentation about a seven-mile section of Corridor H in Wardensville in Hardy County on Thursday.

This is the section of the four-lane highway that ends at the Virginia state line, with no immediate plans by Virginia officials to build the road to connect with Interstate 81.

Still, the road is one of the top priorities for state leaders. Most of it is complete, except for the nine miles from Parsons to Davis and the seven miles east of Wardensville.

The Parsons to Davis section is the most controversial. Community and environmental groups have pushed for a northern route with fewer impacts, while the state prefers a southern route.

Thursday’s meeting will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the War Memorial Building on Main Street in Wardensville.
