This includes Interstate, Turnpike, US, WV, and County routes. Permits for local or city routes should be obtained from those respective agencies.
Attention: Before applying for any permits, please view the restriction information located at the following links: http://wv511.org Select LIST VIEWS, then PLANNED EVENTS for information on interstate and US routes.
