Corridor H Highway – Kerens to Parsons, WV

Congress authorized the construction of the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS) in the Appalachian Development Act of 1965. The ADHS was designed to generate economic development in previously isolated areas, supplement the interstate system, and provide access to areas within the region as well as to markets in the rest of the nation.  Currently, the ADHS is authorized at 3,090 miles. The planned 157-mile Corridor H is the only highway that remains incomplete within the highways authorized under the ADHS. The Kerens to Parsons section of Corridor H is a 10.6-mile section currently under construction. Sauls Seismic was chosen by Kokosing Construction to conduct the preblast inspections, monitor blasting, monitor rainfall, and handle blasting complaints. As of now, Sauls has conducted over 150 preblast inspections, monitored blasting with 16 different seismograph locations, and remotely monitored rainfall with 3 different rain gauge locations. The Sauls Seismic Now AccessSM website was utilized throughout the project to notify project management of vibration alerts.  A combination text/email alert system was set up to send notifications for both alert and action levels of vibration.
