Charleston, W. Va. – Additional construction on Appalachian Corridors D and H are among recent DOH contract awards that have brought 2001 totals to nearly $218 million.

Bizzack, Inc. of Lexington, Ky., was awarded the $8,379,646 Wood County project, which calls for grading, drainage and paving on 0.73 miles of Corridor D from Alternate WV 14 to east of Buckeye Street in the Parkersburg area. Requiring more than half a million cubic yards of earthwork, the project includes construction of two prestressed girder bridges, a three-span structure to carry the mainline over East Street and a single span to carry the mainline over Buckeye Street.

Polino Contracting, Inc. of Elkins bid $18,549,091 to construct 2.68 miles of Corridor H from Pine Ridge Road (County 23/8) to the west approach of the Lost River Bridge, scheduled for later bidding. Grading and drainage will require nearly 3.3 million cubic yards of earthwork, including over a million cubic yards of "borrow" material, and several 60-inch pipes to carry unnamed small streams under the roadway. In addition to paving, signing and pavement marking, work calls for a three-span fabricated steel girder bridge to carry the four-lane highway over Sauerkraut Run.

A $10,846,193 contract to upgrade Meadowbrook Road to alleviate congestion in the Clarksburg area was awarded to Elmo Greer & Sons, LLC of London, Ky. Calling for four-lane widening on 1.76 miles of County 24 from County 24/34 at the I-79 interchange to the FBI Center access road (County 24/27), the project includes construction of a single-span prestressed concrete girder bridge to carry a side road over relocated Simpson Creek. From the area of the bridge leading to Highways' District Four headquarters, a fifth lane will be provided on eastbound Meadowbrook Road for right turns onto southbound I-79.
