Corridor H (US 48)
When complete, Corridor H will stretch 130 miles across the mountains from I-79 at Weston to the junction of I-66 and I-81 in Virginia.
Corridor H will allow ease of access to vital shipping ports, improved access for the trucking industry, and increasing opportunities in product movement and exportation.
Economic activity across the region is driven by industries related to tourism, hardwood harvesting and manufacturing, and the health and energy sectors.
