WV: WV 310 in Fairmont extneded from US 250 to US 19
« on: July 25, 2018, 05:03:08 pm »
In Fairmont WV, WV 310 has been extended across a new bridge and route from US 250 to US 19.  On Google aerial photos, you can see the route using 3rd Street, a new bridge, then an S curve to join 4th St.  The new 3rd St bridge replaces the now-demolished 4th St bridge.

Is there a news release mentioning the extension, or any photos out there from the US-19 end showing this extension?

I found two articles and a Facebook post.

This video from last November has a very quick glimpse of a WV 310 sign near US 19. http://www.wdtv.com/content/news/Fourth-Street-bridge--457539073.html

This Facebook photo from December just before it opened has a shot of WV 310/To US 19 signs on the US 250 end of the extension: https://m.facebook.com/groups/343878442304199?view=permalink&id=1973026812722679

This article notes the opening of the bridge:

I had to go back to WV this weekend, so I got a photo of the new north end of WV 310 at US 19.

Is there a news release mentioning the extension, or any photos out there from the US-19 end showing this extension?

Do I need to provide anything else for this one?

Nah, it's all good.  This will be added when I get to the route in my overhaul. :)
