Info Meeting Re: Special Election
Charles Washington Hall
Corner of George and Washington Streets
Charles Town, WV 25414
On Saturday October 7, a special election will take place in West Virginia to decide on a constitutional amendment to implement a program entitled Roads to Prosperity.
The League of Women Voters of Jefferson County is sponsoring an informational meeting on the amendment. Lee Thorne, District Five Engineer for the WV Department of Highways, will make the presentation (District Five includes Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral and Morgan Counties).
There will be time for questions from the audience
The Roads to Prosperity Amendment will authorize the state legislature to issue and sell state bonds not to exceed $1.6 billion for road building and road improvement projects throughout the state.
The four largest projects proposed for Jefferson County in terms of cost are: Widening of US 340 between Rippon and the VA state line ($40,000,000); Operational improvements/turning lanes along US 340 in the vicinity of Harpers Ferry ($11,000,000); Cranes Lane/Mildred Street intersection improvements ($5,900,000); and Summit Point Road intersection improvements ($1,700,000). Many other less costly safety and operational improvements are proposed in the county. A complete list of all the projects for Jefferson County and the state may be found at the website Pathway to Prosperity Highway Program.
All members of the public are invited to attend.
The League of Women Voters works to encourage informed and active participation in the democratic process through voter registration, education and the promotion of fair, active and open government. More information about the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County may be found at our website.
