The Mileground – Airport Road project on United States Route 119 involves upgrading the three-lane facility to a four-lane facility to help eliminate congestion and improve traffic flow.
This project is funded through the Roads to Prosperity Constitutional Amendment allowing the issuance of up to $1.6 Billion of General Obligation (GO) Bonds. The GO bonds are funded by increases to vehicle registration fees and the consumer sales tax on motor vehicles, and raising the floor on the average wholesale price of gas (SB 1006). This was envisioned by Governor Jim Justice as a way to drive West Virginia forward to more jobs and better infrastructure.
The West Virginia Department of Transportation asks you to please use caution when driving in work zones — Just. Slow. Down. It’s everybody’s responsibility. Drivers should download the WV 511 app for regular traffic and road work updates or go to the website at www.WV511.org. For information about the project, visit Drive Forward WV or the WVDOT Facebook.
