Purpose of the meeting
The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will hold an Informational Workshop Public Meeting on Thursday, August 7, 2014, in the gym concourse area at Huntington High School, located at One Highlander Way, Huntington, Cabell County, West Virginia on the proposed Melissa-Huntington road project. The project consists of improvements along WV 10 beginning near the eastbound ramp of I-64 (Exit 11) and near Cedar Crest Drive (County Route 44). New intersections will be constructed at High School Road, Woodville Drive (County Route 46), Mount Union Road (County Route 39), James Kilowatt Road (County Route 10/15), and Green Valley Road (County Route 35 South). The intersections at Norwood Road (County Route 35 North) and Orchard Road will be reconfigured to utilize a portion of existing WV 10 as a local access street. This meeting complies with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requirements. The approved Environmental Assessment
(24 MB PDF) will be available for review.
Improvements along WV 10 between Huntington and Melissa have been studied since the late 1960s. In the 1990s, the KYOVA Interstate Planning Commission, the area’s officially-designated metropolitan planning organization, analyzed traffic patterns and recommended that WV 10 be upgraded. An Environmental Assessment (EA) was approved for the project in October 2002, but not circulated or carried through to a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), a necessity to complete the project now.
