ROUTE LOG
US 33, WV 55: 0 - 0
Tucker-Randolph Line: 4.9 - 4.9
WV 72: 1.7 - 6.6
US 48 EB, WV 93: 13.1 - 19.7
US 48 WB, US 219: 2.1 - 21.8
Creation: Appeared between 1929-31 as a renumbering of WV 40 running generally the way it does now. This is the 2nd WV 32.
Adjustments: Around the time of the change from WV 40 to WV 32, the highway was removed from the lengthy CR 35 through Cortland and CR 32/14 at Canaan Heights.
Between 1933-35, WV 32 was removed from CR 43 into Red Creek (now WV 72) and more CR 35 northeast (now this is CR 45/3 then CR 35/19 which ends at Canaan Valley State Park; the N-S portion of Park Rd 817 which no longer exits the north end of the park)
It appears WV 32 was placed on one-way splits through Thomas between 1950-56.
In 1955 (bridge date), WV 32 was rerouted on its south end via new construction to meet the new US 33 routing just outside Harman. The old route is CR 32/5 Main St.
Improvements: Paved upon inception from Davis to Thomas
The rest was fully paved by 1946
WV 32 has no multilane segments
Comment: WV 32 serves Blackwater Falls State Park
