W.Va. DOH looks for ways to finish US 35 upgrade

WINFIELD, W.Va. (AP) — State highways officials are looking for ways to complete an upgrade of U.S. 35 in Mason and Putnam counties.

The project would expand a 14.6-mile section of the highway to four lanes.

The Division of Highways had planned to fund the $187 million project with revenue from tolls. But county officials rejected the proposal and Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin took tolls off the table as a funding option in 2011.

DOH spokesman Brent Walker tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1bRgCCV ) that the agency is seeking alternate funding for the project.

Walker says one possibility is a public-private partnership.
