Know more about W.Va. 9

October 04, 2006

The issue: Work to replace W.Va. 9, a notoriously dangerous road in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia with a new, four-lane route continues to move slowly ahead as hurdles still remain for construction to begin in Berkeley County.

What's new: Graves of three infants buried on an old Berkeley County farm are expected to be removed from the right of way for a new route of the highway on Friday.

What's next: Removal of the graves will allow state highway officials to open contractors' bids later this month for the first section of the project to be done in Berkeley County between the Eastern Regional Jail and Opequon Creek Bridge. The project completion date is Sept. 30, 2009.
