ABOUT THE HAL GREER BOULEVARD CORRIDOR PLAN
Hal Greer Boulevard is the front door of Huntington and the end of West Virginia Route 10. It's the approach to the city, connects the community to Interstate 64, and it leads to the front door of Marshall University and the Cabell Huntington Hospital. It borrows its name from basketball legend and local icon Hal Greer, who before becoming an All-American at Marshall and playing for the 76ers, grew up in Huntington and went to high school just a block over from what then called 16th Street at Douglass Junior and Senior on 10th Avenue.
Today, Hal Greer Boulevard is a principal arterial road featuring four travel lanes and a median or continuous turning lane from Highlander Way (the access road to Huntington High) to 3rd Avenue. The Hal Greer Boulevard Corridor Plan will examine this roadway and propose solutions to concerns about congestion, flooding, pedestrian and cyclist safety, and connectivity along and across the boulevard. To accomplish this, the project team will be collaborating closely with the West Virginia Depart of Highways, the City of Huntington, the KYOVA Metropolitan Planning Organization, as well as representatives of the communities and institutions along Hal Greer. In order to make this plan the biggest success it can be, we will call on the community, the residents, students, and workers who live near or travel on Hal Greer everyday to participate in the planning process.
On this site, you will find information about the project schedule and public meetings that you are invited to attend. Also available here are the online mapping tool and an online survey. With your input on issues, concerns, and desires along Hal Greer Boulevard, the project team can get a better understanding and make better recommendations for the future of the roadway. If you have any further questions or comments about the Corridor Plan, the website, or if you need any information about the planning process, please send us a message through our comment box on the Contact page.
