MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Steve Parrish was quick to point out a problem he sees with a proposed bypass around Martinsburg which would divert heavy W.Va. 9 traffic from downtown. Southbound motorists currently entering Martinsburg on Edwin Miller Boulevard - which is also W.Va. 9 - pass by a long stretch of restaurants, businesses, and motels such as the Leisure Inn and the Comfort Inn. But under one of the four proposed bypass routes, there would be no access to the area around the motels, Parrish said.
