Gov. Justice announces $40 million in grant funding for road construction in Tucker, Morgan Counties


Governor Jim Justice announced this week that West Virginia will receive $40 million through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Better Utilizing Investment to Leverage Development (BUILD) Grants. These grants are designated by the Federal Government for use by the West Virginia Department of Transportation on two major projects: a bypass around Berkeley Springs in Morgan County, and construction of approximately 10 miles of Corridor H, a four-lane expressway in Tucker County that is part of the Appalachian Development Highway System. Each project will receive $20 million. The West Virginia Department of Transportation, with approval from Gov. Justice, advocated for eight BUILD grants this year including the two that were awarded, the New River Parkway in Summers County, Culloden Interchange, U.S. 52 Expansion, Wheeling Complete Street Project, I-70 Interchange in Triadelphia, and a widening project in Berkeley County. Gov. Justice is scheduled to attend a press conference on Tuesday, December 11, in Washington, D.C. to accept the grant award.

 

CAWV JOINT CONCRETE COMMITTEE RESOLVES CONCRETE SPEC ISSUE

 

The CAWV Joint Concrete Committee met on Thursday, December 6, at the CAWV headquarters. The committee received an update on the Mass Concrete Study that is being conducted at WVU and discussed several proposed changes in specifications. One of the proposed changes, Adding Water After Superplasticizer (601.7), would have affected a supplier’s ability to add water to the mix on the project site. Co-Chair Mike Mance, cement and concrete supervisor for the WVDOH Materials Division, noted that the intent of the specification was not to limit the ability of the supplier to add water at the project and agreed that the wording of the proposed specification change should be changed to reflect the intent.  Phil Browne, CAWV Joint Concrete Committee chair, said this shows why the work of CAWV committees are so important. “Without this meeting today, the proposed specification language would have been passed and every supplier in the state would have to comply with a specification that was not the intent of the state,” Chairman Browne stated. “By meeting face to face, we were able to resolve the issue and have language in the specification that clearly defines the intent of the change.” Co-Chair Mance also reported on the status of several issues that committee members brought to their attention. Look for updates on these issues, and any resulting specification changes, in future Highway/Heavy Bulletins.  For more information, contact Pat McDonald at (304) 342-1166, or email pmcdonald@cawv.org.
