US Rep. Shelley Moore Capito wants US 35 upgrade completed in Mason, Putnam counties
WINFIELD, West Virginia — U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito is pushing to get a long-debated widening project finished on U.S. Route 35 in Mason and Putnam counties as the search continues for ways to pay for it.
The West Virginia Republican took a tour Friday of a 14.6-mile section of the highway that’s been stuck on two lanes for decades.
The four-lane highway starts at Interstate 64 in Putnam County and is a major truck and bus route connecting to southern Ohio and other points in the Midwest. Other sections of the highway already have been rerouted and widened.
