Before awarding contracts, WVDOT considers a number of factors like whether the bid is above or below the department’s Engineer’s Estimate. “Most projects are reviewed, analyzed, and awarded within a week of the bid letting, but the process can take longer,” WVDOT said. The letting process began on Tuesday.

Included in the list of projects is a 3,300-foot-long bridge spanning the Cheat River, a part of a four-lane upgrade to Appalachian Corridor H, which encompasses Interstate 79 near Weston, “across some of West Virginia’s most rugged terrain,” to Interstate 81 in Strasburg, Virginia.
