Governor Jim Justice spent the morning in Randolph County touring structure 7A along the newest section of Corridor H.
Justice, along with several community leaders, saw a virtual tour of the completed corridor and toured a new structure and other construction sites. The more than 7 mile Kerens to Parsons Connector is 30% complete, and Justice said he sees a variety of future opportunities for the region and the state.
“There’s so many people that could touch West Virginia and bring so much opportunity. The Corridor H project, as far as a highway project for bringing economic development to West Virginia, is number one. We’ve got to get Corridor H done; that’s all there is to it,” said Governor Justice.
Attendees also toured the current terminus of the Corridor H roadway.
Officials said the project is a priority and funds are being sought to complete another several miles of the roadway
