This is a view of one of the massive Corridor H bridges from below on Old West Virginia 55 between Baker and Wardensville as the roads cross the Cacapon River (click on the ⛶ in the top right to to view fullscreen).
Strasburg affirmed similar concerns as Shenandoah County about the continuation of Corridor H, a massive 4-lane divided highway, past its current terminus in Wardensville, West Virginia. West Virginia transportation plans envision the highway replacing the current Route 55 into Virginia and interchanging with the I-81/I-66 corridor near Strasburg. There has been long opposition to this idea in Virginia, and no Virginia plans exist for the project.
And now, the Town of Strasburg is also on record opposing the plan:
“…it would negatively impact the town’s vibrant tourism industry by causing irreversible damage to some of the area’s most significant historic resources…”
“There appear to be no benefits to the citizens of Strasburg that would result from constructing a Corridor H Highway to connect with I-81 and/or I-66 near Strasburg, Virginia.”
