Vintage West Virginia: A new turning lane on MacCorkle Avenue

A new right-turning lane taking shape on MacCorkle Avenue at 35th Street was a joint project of the City of Charleston and the State Road Commission. It would allow traffic to “peel off” and continue on past Watt Powell Park, preventing clogged lanes during heavy traffic. June 23, 1967 photo by Ray Wheeler.
