Beckley Z-Way Shady Springs To Beaver

Beckley Z-Way

The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) is conducting this informational workshop public meeting to make available the approved US 19 Shady Spring to Beaver Project Environmental Assessment. This meeting complies with the public involvement requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Copies of the Environmental Assessment are available below and at the meeting. You are encouraged to examine the Environmental Assessment and discuss the project with members of the study team. A handout with project details will be available at the meeting.

Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)
The FONSI for this project is available for review.

Project Description

The preferred alternative will widen 3.65 miles of existing US 19 from WV 3 (Hinton Road) to a point just north of County Route 19/54 (Granby Circle). By widening to both sides of the existing road, impacts to existing residences, businesses, and environmental features will be avoided to a great extent. The new configuration will provide a through-lane in each direction and a continuous left turn lane throughout the corridor. It will correct poor horizontal and vertical geometry and eliminate many of the existing skewed intersections. The through-lanes will be 12 feet wide and the continuous turning lane will be 14 feet wide. The estimated construction cost of the preferred alternative is $35 million. This cost does not include final design, right-of-way, or utility relocations.
