America’s Highways for 148 miles south along Interstate 79 from Morgantown to Charleston in West Virginia.
Join us for a scenic southerly drive along Interstate 79 in West Virginia. We start the video merging onto I-79 from Interstate 68 just south of Morgantown. From there, we quickly reach Fairmont where we cross the interchange with U.S. Highway 250.
Continuing south, we take a quick break at a rest area in Bridgeport before crossing U.S. Highway 50. Further south, we cross the U.S. Highway 119 interchange in Weston and the U.S. 19 interchange in Flatwoods. From there, I-79 turns typically west to make it’s final approach into the Charleston area and it’s terminus at Interstate 77, where we end this video.
I watched this video this morning, but I watched it with the volume turned all the way down, because my regular morning radio show was on. One of the songs it played while I was watching this?Just guess.
Joni Mitchell – Morning Morgantown?
Bonk buzzer.Think: A little more ubiquitous. Probably the only song about West Virginia that a majority of adults know off hand.
That's about the only one I can think of off hand.
Country roads, take me home, to the place, I belong…
Ah yes. For some reason, I didn't associate that with West Virginia (even if it is in the lyrics.)
I so wish I could use popular music in my videos and NOT have ads all over the place…
Not a whole lot when you get south of clarksburg. I’ve made this drive many times.
