April – September 2019 Status:
After discovering evidence of the West Virginia Northern Flying Squirrel, a Federally Endangered Species, the WVDOH completed additional environmental investigations throughout the 10-mile area between Parsons and Davis in Tucker County.
The Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) on the segment was approved on December 4, 2002. A public hearing was held February 6, 2003 at the Blackwater Lodge in Davis. Comments were due by April 22, 2003. The Thomas and Davis City Councils had an additional 60 days (until September 30, 2003) to review the preferred alternative recommendation. The Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Statement was approved by the Federal Highway Administration on February 2, 2007, and comments regarding the SFEIS were due August 1, 2007. A SEIS is underway.
Final design of this segment through Tucker County is anticipated to begin in 2023. Construction tentatively is scheduled to begin in 2024.
