WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), chairman of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure, today announced $12,000,000 from the U.S. Department of Transportation for an improvement project to Corridor H in Tucker County. This funding will help support the completion of the Corridor H pavement project from Kerens to Parsons, increasing the reliability of our infrastructure in West Virginia and improving transportation. Senator Capito has long-advocated for Corridor H funding through her role on both the EPW and Appropriations Committee and was personally notified of the funding by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

“I am very pleased to see this funding coming to support West Virginia’s infrastructure and Corridor H. In February, I wrote a letter to Secretary Chao in support of the West Virginia Divisions of Highway’s application for this funding and am pleased to announce they will be receiving the full amount requested. The mountainous terrain of our state creates challenges as we construct additional infrastructure, but this federal support will allow for the completion of an existing project along Corridor H in Tucker County, easing the transportation of people and goods from all across the mid-Atlantic region. Secretary Chao and I spoke personally about this project today, and I am thrilled for the positive impact it will have back home,” said Senator Capito.
