|WILLIAMSTOWN, WV – Gov. Jim Justice and officials with the West Virginia Department of Transportation visited Wood County today to announce a Roads To Prosperity construction project that will significantly improve traffic flow to the city of Williamstown and the surrounding area.
“As you look out here today we are happy to tell you, that as part of my Roads to Prosperity program, construction is getting started on a $4.3 million roundabout, designed to help alleviate traffic congestion here at the intersections of State Routes 14 and 31,” Gov. Justice said.
“We know that it is going to help to improve access to the Williamstown area and we’re excited about this project. This time next year, in the Fall of 2020, we will be celebrating the completion of this road work,” Gov. Justice added.
“This will make such a positive difference,” Williamstown Mayor Jean Ford said. “There have been so many accidents, this is going to be a great solution to the problem. We are so thankful and thrilled.”
The Williamstown project is one of nearly 1,000 Roads To Prosperity projects that have either already been completed, are currently under construction, or will be underway before the end of 2019. These projects represent more than $1.1 billion-worth of work covering more than 1,700 miles.
