WVDOH to have public meeting and a workshop

May. 10, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

CHARLESTON -- The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will have an informational public meeting on Monday, May 20, at Rock Branch Elementary School, 4616 1st Ave., Nitro, on the proposed widening of Interstate 64 from the new Interchange at Crooked Creek (Exit 39) to east of the Nitro Interchange (Exit 45).

This 3.79 mile stretch of interstate lies between two existing six-lane sections of I-64 and includes a new second truss bridge over the Kanawha River. This meeting initiates the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) studies.

The project is part of the WVDOT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program 2012/2017, and will increase in the number of lanes and capacity from Charleston to the unincorporated community of Scott Depot at Interstate 64/WV 34 (Exit 39).

The public meeting is from 4 to 7 p.m. No formal presentation will be made, but the public will be given the opportunity to ask questions and give written comments on the project throughout the meeting. A handout with project details will be available at the meeting and on the WVDOH website.

Those wishing to file written comments may send them to Gregory Bailey, P.E., Director Engineering Division, West Virginia Division of Highways, Capitol Complex Building 5, 1900 Kanawha Boulevard East, Charleston, West Virginia 25305-0430 on or before Thursday, June 20, 2013.
