A 4.7-mile section of Corridor H will open following a ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 22 at a scenic overlook on the new road.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox and other state federal, and local officials are scheduled to attend the opening of the newest section of Corridor H, Bismarck Connector at WV 93 to Scherr Connector at WV 93.  The celebration will take place at a scenic overlook on the new road, two miles west of the WV 93 Connector at Scherr.

"Opening this section of roadway highlights years of aggressive work by many organizations to finish Corridor H as quickly as possible, Mattox said in a news release.

The section between Bismarck and the Scherr WV 93 Connector comes at a cost of $65 million and completes the Bismarck to Wardensville section, totaling nearly 49 miles.  A 16.2-mile section from Davis to Bismarck is under construction, with a scheduled fall 2014 completion date, bringing the total mileage of Corridor H open or under construction to nearly 108 miles, or more than 76 percent completed.

To date, construction costs have reached $1.45 billion with an estimated cost to complete at another $1 billion.
