|West Virginia State Route 14 – also known as Murdoch Avenue in Parkersburg and Grand Central Avenue in Vienna – is a seven-lane roadway, carrying an average of 37,900 vehicles per day.|
“This project being completed means that even more goodness is going to come to the Parkersburg and Vienna communities,” Gov. Justice said.
The project, completed by contractor Kelly Paving, included 2.99 miles-worth of paving, spanning from 26th Street in Parkersburg to 28th Street in Vienna. Roadwork began on July 24, 2020, lasting just over two months.
“Our scheduled completion date was officially October 16th, but as you can see, the paving is complete now,” WVDOT Deputy Secretary Jimmy Wriston said. “We’re very proud of this particular project.
“Vienna folks call their portion of the road ‘The Miracle Mile,’ and now it’s truly a miracle because you’ll be able to roll smooth on this thing,” Deputy Secretary Wriston continued. “The surface that was put on the road is called SuperPave. That’s the ‘Cadillac’ of surfaces that’s being used for the people up here. It’ll hold up for years to come.”
