The Tier 1 Study of the National Highway System (NHS) US 220 Corridor that connects Corridor H to Interstate 68 is nearing completion. This study has been funded by both Maryland and West Virginia.

At the completion of the Tier 1 Study, the next required step is the Tier 2 Study. The Maryland Congressional Delegation has secured the funding for the Tier 2 Study through earmarks.

The US 50 Association has become a participating agency in the US 220 NHS corridor study at the request of the Federal Highway Administration. As a result the US 50 Association is respectfully requesting that you earmark funding for West Virginia’s portion of the US 220 NHS Corridor Tier 2 Study to match Maryland’s delegation. This will allow the project of move forward more quickly.

Thank You
