Wardensville.....I have eaten periodically at the Kac Ka Pon restaurant on my way past many times ever since I was a young child. Foods not as good as years ago, but still decent enough to warrant a stop. Pies are excellent (homemade).

I didn't realize Corridor H was complete now. On the other hand, I usually use it from I-81 near Front Royal to Wardensville then Moorefield, then take 28 south from there. When I've been to Elkins a couple times a few years back, I came down 219 from either Oakland MD or Blackwater Falls either cutting through past Durbin back to 28 or going all the way down to 66 to cut east to Snowshoe and Cass.
The 4 lane is done all the way from just outside Wardensville to Davis. And it is a very pretty ride.

From there I usually go out thru Canaan to get to Elkins, because that road from Thomas to Parsons to Elkins sucks and I always get stuck behind some slow trucks. I can be in Annapolis from Elkins now reliably in 4.5 hours. I take 66 out from DC.

As far as Clarksburg goes, what was said about Bridgeport was true. I'd either look north (preferrably) or south. The airport there now even has daily directs to Dulles and O'Hare.

My cousin lives in Fairmont, some of that area is nice too.

Morgantown is like a big jumbled mess. But they keep building.

So hopefully Harrison for me.

It's only completed to above Thomas. It's going to be a long time before it is completed all the way down to Elkins.

My uncle was the state road engineer here in the Elkins for 30 years or more. He was the one who did alot of the original work. When they had planned for it to go out thru Harman, etc. When they moved it to bypass Elkins and go to Parsons they have been in court ever since, between the environmental groups and the historical preservation groups.

He said he doubts it will be done before 2030 lol

That is pretty much spot on for what I heard.

It's a crying shame. It might bring a few more new jobs out this way.
