This project proposes to construct the Berkeley Springs Bypass and the Fairview Connector. The project begins at Winchester Road (County Route 13) to Sandmine Road (County Route 38/1), including a connector from US 522 to Fairview Drive (near War Memorial Hospital) for a distance of approximately 4 miles. The Berkeley Springs Bypass will be a four-lane, controlled access expressway with a grassed median and a design speed of 65 miles per hour.
This Berkeley Springs Bypass project is part of the US 522 project that was studied in the mid-1990s to early 2000s. That project consists of a four-lane roadway on a new alignment from the Virginia/ West Virginia state line to the Maryland state line for a distance of approximately 19 miles.
The comment period for this project ended on April 1, 2019.
