Study: Section of U.S. 522 through Morgan County could be viable toll road

May 23, 2008

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A state Department of Transportation draft study of three Eastern Panhandle roads shows one of them could be a viable candidate as a toll road.

The traffic and revenue study released Thursday shows a 19-mile stretch of U.S. 522 between the Maryland border to the north and the Virginia border to the south could support tolls. The study says any decision would have to be made with the backing of the community.

The study found two other roads are unlikely candidates as toll roads due to their short distances. They are a 4.7-mile section of state Route 9 between Martinsburg and the Virginia border, and about five miles of U.S. 340 between the Virginia border and the Charles Town bypass.
