More renovation in downtown Huntington. Now that the historic tax credit has kicked in, it’ll be interesting to see if other projects start as well.

It's nice to see both projects move forward. I'm sure we all could think of many properties in Huntington that could benefit from this program.

Have any proposed plans or renderings been release for the future apartments on the Elk Lodge property?

None that I have seen. I’ve heard about 5 buildings were ready to be redeveloped though, just waiting on the tax credit. I guess we’ll see.

Five more ready to go sounds like a good start to 2018. Let's hope it happens.

Fingers crossed. The two I'd most like to see redone the most are the Coal Exchange Building and the Morris Building. I've heard both have had interest with what sound like good plans. I really hope that they happen.

Route 10 is being expanded from 2 to 4 lanes from Huntington High School to parts unknown to me. Work is speeding up and there is a lot of heavy earth-moving equipment on site. Anyone have a link or information about this?

If I remember correctly, they are supposed to start with the area from HHS to Melissa, which is where Alt 10 ties into Rt 10. The state bought a lot of the property when Underwood was governor because they planned on doing it then. As soon as Wise was elected though, that was one of the projects that he tabled. This is supposed to be part of the Roads Bill that was recently passed.

I thought this was separate from the Road Bond and pared down to a three-lane cross-section (middle turn lane). The "WV 10 Operational and Safety Improvements," which incorporates Cabell, Logan, and Lincoln Counties (and, somehow separate from a similar project on WV in Wyoming and Mercer Counties that now is in the engineering phase) doesn't include the HHS-Melissa project. If I remember correctly, funds were already allocated to the project before the Road Bond.

As said, the project was originally going to be a four lane stretch, but the approved environmental assessment (and the FONSI issued for it) had a three-lane alignment as the preferred alternative. That was back in 2014/2015, so things may have changed, but I haven't seen any updated documents.
