In December 2003, WV 62 was extended on an easterly trek along the former
alignment of US 33 to end at I-77 in Ripley. Continuing straight ahead
puts you on US 33 East.
A look at the beginning of WV 62 South from US 33 West. US 33 had
continued straight along WV 62 to the bridge over the Ohio River in Mason.
(see historical northern terminus photos below.)
US 33 was moved to a new alignment in December 2003 that begins at I-77
in Ripley. The route running westbound is as follows: North on I-77
to the WV 2 Ravenswood exit (exit 146), west from WV 2 to the Ravenswood
Bridge, crossing the bridge into Ohio and then following a new alignment
Bonus Coverage: Historical Northern Terminus
The Northern Terminus of WV 62 was at US 33 in Mason.
WV 62 was the first route that US 33 sees upon entering West Virginia from
Ohio. The bridge connects Pomeroy, Ohio to Mason. WV 62 North
now follows the path of US 33 East.
The Southern Terminus of WV 62 is at WV 25 in South
