It's going to be debatable whether it's better to try your luck at the stop sign, or head to Charles Town, and hopefully have a way to merge.
ok...so maybe i'm dense on this one but if i am traveling from Va on Rt 9 towards Charles Town and then turning left onto Mission, how will that be changing? If i'm reading this right, they are going to be demolishing part of that section of Rt 9. Help me understand please!!
Only a few hundred yards of the existing Rt 9 will be blocked off/demolished

I tried taking it into Photoshop and aligning it with a current Google map, but it just doesn't fit - presumably because it is a concept drawing and not particularly accurate.
P.S. Yes it looks like the smileys in the editor are back.
However, if you are coming back to WV and heading west bound and want to turn left and go on the old Rt 9 to get to Mission Road, you will need to make a left against all the traffic heading east into VA and that traffic will not have a stop sign. Good luck on making that left. If you do live through making that left, the next left onto Mission "should" be easier because there "should" be less traffic on the old 9 heading east bound.
It won't be so hard to make the right onto Chestnut Hill at the VA/WV line, because that will be a right turn. But still you will have to watch for people on old 9 wanting to just cross the new road and go on Chestnut Hill, people on Chestnut wanting to go E to VA or W to the new 9 or cross to the old 9. It will be mess.
Personally, I think the easiest thing to do during "rush hour," rather than to try to make a left on old 9, will be to go right on chestnut hill and then left and up Hostler (Hostetler??) road then right on old 9 to Mission.

Heading into our neck of the mountain from VA, why not make a right onto Chestnutt Hill and then a left at the 3 churches?
An Invitation to Contribute to Out Stash of Bridge Construction Photos
Our user 9933 is starting adding a few via yours truly. They were taken a few days ago.
The first is a lineup of steel beams being delivered to the west side of the bridge. 9933 hopes that the defects in the Bloomery Rd tunnel have been fixed
A closer look
The steel obviously has to be delivered from both east and west. Below is a truck just east of Rt 9 and Mission Rd headed for Hostler Rd and the bridge's landing there.
9933, shot a pic of the bridge from the Millville power plant. I think we've got an image of how it will appear when finished somewhere on the forum. I can't find it right now However, please accept the invitation to take some photos form various vantage point to add to the collection of it's phases of construction and thank 9933
Anyway a person decides (or tries) to go on "old" 9 towards Chuck Town is going to be difficult. That extra 20-30 minutes on 340/7 might not seem so bad.
Maybe we need a parking area by the rt 7 bridge over the doah river in VA so we can start and stop our communtes with a kayak river ride :-)
Christmas Day, 2011, took a lovely kayak ride from the boat ramp/river access off Hostler Rd, and road down to the top of Millville Dam, attached are fresh shots of the new bridge......
