US 340 Improvements


State Project: U219-340-0.00
Federal Project: NH-0340(030)E

UPDATE: August 2019

 

The West Virginia Department of Highways (WVDOH) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) propose to improve the existing two-lane section of US 340 from the existing four-lane section just south of the state boundary in Clarke County, Virginia to the existing four-lane section of the Charles Town Bypass in Jefferson County, West Virginia. The project is included within the Hagerstown/Eastern Panhandle Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The project is being funded in its entirety by federal and state monies administered by the WVDOH. An Interstate Agreement between the West Virginia Department of Transportation, Division of Highways and the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has been drafted to address the responsibilities with regard to construction, maintenance, and funding of the proposed US 340 Improvements. In general, it states that WVDOH will be the lead agency in the preparation of construction plans and related documents. It will be responsible for construction of the project including all construction inspection and material testing. Plans and documents related to the Virginia side of the state line will be subject to the review of VDOT. The two states will bear the cost of construction of the portion of the highway that lies in their respective states and will assume responsibilities for maintenance and repair upon completion and acceptance of the project. WVDOH will initially bear all the costs for the project and will invoice VDOT annually for a period of ten years for their share of the costs incurred by WVDOH after the project is successfully let and awarded.
