Interstate 79 – Morgantown to Charleston – West Virginia

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?

    • Interstate 411

      That's about the only one I can think of off hand.

    • Interstate 411

      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…
