I think the idea behind improvements to a corridor between I-79 and WV 2 is to improve access for the traffic that's been generated by fracking. The last time I was in that area, injection well sites and pipeline construction projects were widespread.

US 250 is one of those "why is this road on the US highway system?" routes.

Fracking traffic is generally local, to and from a water source. With persistent low natural gas prices, the amount of drilling has dropped significantly from its peak.

For this upcoming weekend's Webinar presentation, we'll be taking a look at the overall interstate and highway system of West Virginia and giving folks a general overview of the roads of The Mountain State. Coverage will begin on Saturday (2/20) at 6 PM ET and will feature live contributions from members of this forum; we hope to see you there!
