Informational Workshop Planned for Proposed Hobet Development Site Access Road



The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will hold an informational public meeting on Monday, August 15, 2016, at Brookview Elementary School located at 1 Learning Way in Foster, West Virginia on the proposed Hobet Development Site Access Road.  This project proposes to construct a four-lane access road from US 119 near its intersection with WV 3 and extends approximately 2.6 miles to the former Hobet mine property in Boone County.  The new access road will improve an existing access road to the site from US 119.  This meeting complies with the public involvement requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.


The scheduled public meeting is from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and the public will be afforded 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 Mr. RJ Scites, P.E., Director, Engineering Division, West Virginia Division of Highways, 1334 Smith Street, Charleston, West Virginia 25301 on or before Thursday, September 15, 2016.  Visit the WVDOH Website at for project information and the opportunity to comment on the project.
