The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will hold a virtual informational public meeting on Monday, August 10, 2020 on the proposed project upgrades to 0.95 miles of Van Voorhis Road between WV 705 (Chestnut Ridge Road) and West Run Road (CR 67/1) in Morgantown, Monongalia County, West Virginia.  Proposed improvements include widening of Van Voorhis Road throughout the project study area to create wider lanes, widening for an additional southbound lane from Killarney Drive to WV 705, shoulder widening and paving, improvement of the roadway alignment near the intersection of Wedgewood Drive, construction of a northbound left turn lane to Wedgewood Drive, replacement of the bridge over West Run, construction of sidewalks, curbs, gutters, retaining walls and drainage improvements along various sections of the roadway.  The roadway alignment improvement near Wedgewood Drive includes improvement of the horizontal and vertical alignment of Van Voorhis Road between Clearview Avenue and the Morgantown Health and Rehabilitation Center (Golden Living) driveway. The WVDOH previously held an Informational Workshop Public Meeting in May 2019 detailing the project upgrades to 0.43 miles of Van Voorhis Road (County Route 59) from the junction of Monongalia County 67/1 to Junction of CR 60.   Due to public outreach from the May 2019 meeting the project was revised to address comments.  This meeting complies with the public involvement requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.  

FORMAL PRESENTATIONS WILL BE MADE AT 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM.  The scheduled public meeting is from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and the public will be afforded the opportunity to ask questions and give written comments on the project throughout the meeting.
