CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A new four-lane segment of W.Va. Route 9 in Jefferson County is scheduled to open next month.
The segment runs about 5 miles from U.S. 340 near Charles Town to the Virginia border.
The Herald-Mail (http://bit.ly/Tr3tB5 ) of Hagerstown, Md., says the segment is scheduled to open Nov. 1.
The project is part of an upgrade of Route 9 in the Eastern Panhandle. The original two-lane route was built in the 1930s.
