Driving through Moorefield won’t get easier any time soon. The West Virginia Department of Highways started the first of four contracts last week involving Main Street.
The contract involves upgrading and extending a drain line from Moorefield High School to Spring Avenue.
The second contract, currently set to start in mid-October, involves paving Main Street from the railroad tracks at Southern States to the intersection of Main and Winchester Avenue.
The third contract will pave Winchester Avenue to Spring Avenue.
The fourth contract, not yet let, will pave Main Street from the stoplight at Winchester Avenue, north. This contract also depends partly on when the drain contract is completed.
Once paving begins on Main Street, the only detour is the route that includes Fisher, Hutter and Darlington School Roads, to the Corridor.
The next meeting is Tuesday, October 6 at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall. Masks are required and social distancing is in effect. The public is invited to attend.
