West Virginia Roads - US 250/US 33/US 48

US 250, US 33/250, US 33/48/250

Two sides of the border sign. The next 41 miles of signs are on the WV 92 page, linked at bottom.

US 219 NB joins US 48 EB and US 33 WB/US 250 NB join US 48 WB north of Elkins.

An ugly US 33 shield and some removed mountains are the features on the part of US 33 WB built as part of the Corridor H project, shared briefly by US 250 NB and now also part of US 48. US 33/250 used to use a more southerly route into Elkins, but were rerouted on the Corridor H freeway from there to Laurel Mountain Rd. and replaced by WV 92, for reasons I don't understand. That Corridor H expressway continues on US 219.

Now a part of Business US 250, this is nevertheless still the only covered bridge on the US Highway system. These photos head south, except the first one is actually on the south/east side of the bridge.

Back the other way on Business US 250, with three NB photos and a corresponding video.

Looking south from the bridge along the Tygart River.

NB leaving US 119 (see big link at bottom), with the second photo up Valley Falls Rd. just shy of US 50.

Old signs where US 250 and US 50 split in Pruntytown, and a fake sign trying to tag along below the second one. I normally lobby for old signs to be left intact, but please remove that US 250 abomination.

Back the other way on the concurrency, then north to an old alignment over Lost Run that remains in use as a driveway.

Continuing north to downtown Fairmont by the courthouse. The bridge is named for a Tuskegee Airman, so show some respect.

NB with WV 218 SB for the first two signs, then NB and SB on either end of Mannington.

Continuing north to Hundred and the Church Fork bridge.

This old bridge on the north side of Hundred leads to Carnegie Lane. Guess what - it's another old alignment of US 250! You can tell because all the development north of Hundred is on the west side of the WV Fork Fish Creek.

Next, check out this beauty, the former east end of SR 12 (Long Drain Rd.).

This old retaining wall along the north side of Pennsylvania Avenue in Cameron feels like it was meant for more than a secondary route.

NB to Limestone, and then a SB sign while there.

This old guy does business for the Moundsville Volunteer Fire Department.

The west parapet across Parr's Run needs to be replaced. The wall in the 2nd photo holds up a cemetery. Don't want those dead people spilling out onto your road.

From a bridge and a cemetery to a bridge named for a cemetery, crossing Little Grave Creek into Moundsville. Once in town, I found an Opel Manta. Ask your local car enthusiast about it.
