US 220 Request Letter

April 19, 2006

To: WV Department of Highways & MD State Highway Administration

After discussion at the March 15th meeting in Hampshire County the US 50 Association representing Frederick County, VA, Garrett County, MD, Hampshire, Mineral, Grant, Taylor, and Preston Counties in West Virginia request that the US 220 North-South Corridor follow the existing US 220 route.

US 220 multiplexes with US 50 from Junction in Hampshire County, WV west to near New Creek in Mineral County, WV and this would allow a 10 mile section of US 50 to be upgraded into 4-lane. The association believes that this will best serve the communities involved by improving safety and commerce along US 50.
