Martinsburg intersections to be studied by state DOH

September 14, 2012

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — State highway officials have agreed to study two intersections in Martinsburg’s north end in response to the city’s request to address traffic concerns there.

State Transportation Secretary Paul A. Mattox Jr. told Mayor George Karos in a memo Aug. 7 that a study of traffic volumes, crash history and physical conditions at Moler Avenue’s intersection with North High and North Queen streets should be completed within 90 days.

“Once it is completed, I will advise you of the findings of the study and any actions planned by the Division of Highways,” Mattox said in the memo.

Karos requested a traffic signal be installed at the intersection of Moler Avenue and North High Street and improvements be made at the Moler Avenue-Queen street intersection.

East Moler Avenue and Queen Street is also a portion of the route for W.Va. 45 in the city. Portions of U.S. 11 and W.Va. 9 also follow Queen Street through Martinsburg.
