During the 11-day 4th of July holiday travel period, from Thursday June 27, 2024 to Sunday July 7, 2024, 1,374,731 transactions occurred at toll booths on the West Virginia Turnpike.

“Just as we expected, the 11-day travel period for the 4th of July holiday was a busy time for the WV Turnpike,” said Jeff Miller, Executive Director of the West Virginia Parkways Authority. “We are very pleased with the work of our Toll Department, Traffic flaggers, Courtesy Patrol, State Police Troop 7, Maintenance department and Dispatch center, among others. It takes a lot of coordinated effort and planning on ​behalf of several departments to make travel on the WV Turnpike during holiday periods go as smooth as possible for the patron.”

The 1,374,731 total transactions were only 10,269 transactions off from the 1,385,000-estimate released on Wednesday, June 26, 2024.
