The West Virginia Division of Highways will hold an informational workshop public meeting on Monday, October 29th, 2018, at Pine Grove Baptist Church/ Activites Building on the proposed improvements to WV 2 from Parkersburg to St. Marys.
WVDOH is proposing to upgrade WV State Route 2 (WV 2) from County Route 3/8 (Valley Mills Road) to WV State Route 31 (WV 31) for a distance of 2.19 miles. The proposed work would tie into and extend the previously constructed 5-lane section north to the intersection with WV 31. This project began in 1999 as part of a larger project to upgrade WV 2 from Interstate 77 (I-77) to WV 31. At that time an Environmental Document was prepared resulting in a Finding of No Signicant Impact (FONSI) dated January 2002. Construction was completed from I-77 to Valley Mills Road for a distance of 1.65 miles; however, due to funding constraints the section of roadway from Valley Mills Road to WV 31, approximately 2.19 miles, was put on hold. With funding now available through the Governors Roads to Prosperity Program, the remaining section of the project has been restarted. WVDOH is currently in the process of designing the roadway and preparing an environmental reevaluation.
NO FORMAL PRESENTATION WILL BE MADE. The scheduled public meeting is from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and the public will be afforded the opportunity to ask questions and give written comments on the project throughout the meeting. A handout with project details will be available at the meeting.
