First Road Bond Project Established

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY)-With more travelers driving through West Virginia daily, the first road bond project has been established.

 

The West Virginia turnpike will be widening by eight miles to add a third lane for traffic.

 

The lanes will be widened at the north and south bound between U.S. 19 and the intersection of the I-64/I-77 split located by the Tamarack.

 

State Transportation Secretary, Tom Smith, told Metro News that the Project will cost $100 million and the construction will begin later this year. This is one of the first projects with the new road bond that passed in early October.
