The project consists of upgrading the existing two lane section of US 340 in Jefferson County from 0.5 miles southwest of the state line to approximately 2 miles north of the community of Rippon in Jefferson County, West Virginia.

This meeting will update the public on the progress of the US 340 Improvement Study since the last public meeting/hearing in June 2013. Preferred Alternative 4A and the availability of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement will be the focus of the workshop.
