In all the 19 years that my hubby and I lived here, I think I've only seen it pass through once or twice, at best. Don't recall if it was a weekday or weekend when it came through. I believe someone told me that it delivers to the cement/brick facility. Wherever else it goes after that, I don't know. Don't know if it has a set time/day of the week that it delivers. Perhaps there's instances where it would make more deliveries than normal?

Default New Route 9 WV/VA State Line

I noticed that there are two cranes on the east side of the river where the new highway is going in.

It looks like construction for the new bridge is finally going to start. After that is completed. I wonder how long before they finish the new highway?

Default Bridge/Road Status

I had seen a something awhile back about a protest holding up the bridge/Rt9 into Virginia work, so don't know if that was why there has been no progress or if it has been the normal winter (relatively) cold weather down season. Really want this to get done.

My Uncle told me yesterday that steel was being placed across the river.

Not to mention that Rt 9 was supposedly being expanded all the way to Berkeley Springs.

I make that trip a few times each summer, and I gotta say, I'd be sad if that road was replaced, the way it is now is a fun, winding, beautiful drive. There are other, straighter ways to get there, probably faster too, but they're boring as hell.
