The ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday.

Another 8 mile section of Corridor H is officially open for traffic today after a ribbon cutting ceremony in Tucker County.

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin was joined by U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, Department of Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox and others as they cut the blue ribbon stretched across the roadway. 

The ceremony marks the opening of another 7.9 miles of Corridor H, a project that will eventually connect North Central West Virginia with Virginia.

The newly completed section of roadway now connects Davis in Tucker County with Wardensville in Hardy County.

"Corridor H has always been recognized for its potential to expand West Virginia’s reach and support the large and small businesses that serve as a growing part of our economy," Tomblin said during the ceremony, "and with today’s ribbon cutting we will support the completion of more than three-quarters of Corridor H.”

Gov. Tomblin says 102 miles of 132 mile project are now complete.
