WV: "Relocation of US 19" in Beaver

Pursuant to a question on AARoads about the "Beckley Z-Way" (referenced in a recent news article), I did some digging and found a project that refers to a "relocation of US 19" in Beaver (just south of Beckley), from southeast of Airport Rd (WV 307) to the I-64/East Beckley Bypass interchange.

Worth investigating to see if this actually will be a relocation of US 19...and whether 19 would take over the East Beckley Bypass afterwards or return to its original route.

Well, while I am glad that this is occurring, I honestly did not see this coming.

I also wonder how WV 3, WV 210, or other routes in the area may be affected if US 19 is fully relocated.

Interesting for sure.  But it will be quite awhile till this is done for sure.  But something to keep an eye on.
