In a meeting today with West Virginia Eastern Panhandle legislators, highway officials discussed multiple highway issues affecting the Eastern Panhandle area.
In response from an inquiry from Delegate Larry D. Kump, legislators were told that that the highway department now is in the process of reviewing the need for an upgrade of Rt. 9 between Martinsburg and Berkeley Springs.
Highway officials further agreed to Kump's request to look into the need for a traffic signal at the intersection of Rt. 11 and Grade Road in the Marlowe/Falling Waters area.
Among other issues, highway officials also reported that the widening of I-81 is progressing and that Maryland now is working on the design to widen the I-81 bridge between Maryland and West Virginia (Maryland "owns" the Potomac River and has proprietary jurisdiction over the I-81 bridge).
