Gov. Justice, WVDOT announce last stretch of US 35 set to open in August

CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice and the West Virginia Department of Transportation are happy to announce that the last stretch of US 35 to be upgraded to four lanes is on track to open to traffic in August.
Pending unforeseen delays, the last 15-mile stretch of US 35 between Beech Hill and the Buffalo Bridge is set to open to traffic with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the end of August 2021. 

Gov. Justice approved the final contract for paving on the Roads to Prosperity project in April 2019. This is the last section of the $255 million project from Interstate 64 to the West Virginia/Ohio state line to be upgraded from two to four lanes.
The project included eight bridges and a new interchange where US 35 meets WV 869.
The project is a Public-private partnership (3P) between the Division of Highways and Bizzack Construction Company of Lexington, Kentucky.
