2014 Construction Projects

 Beginning Monday, April 7, 2014 the West Virginia Turnpike is planning highway and bridge rehabilitation projects along the entire 88-mile length of the road. There are 426 lane miles on the Turnpike.

 

Travelers may encounter traffic congestion and delays throughout the summer as there will be 52 lane miles of paving (asphalt overlays and mill and inlay) taking place during this time.
