WV 2 Alternate

From: near McKefrey (Marshall County)
To: Moundsville (Marshall County)
Total Length: 3.0 miles  
ROUTE LOG
WV 2: 0 - 0
WV 2: 3.0 - 3.0
Creation: WV 2 ALT was an upgrade to CR 19. Since official state maps only started implying this route existed recently, I really don't know how long this has been here. It does appear on the 1961 Topo map. The next oldest detailed map I have is 1949 Marshall County which shows it as CR 19.
Adjustments: None
Improvements: Fully paved upon designation; no mulitlane segments.
Comment: One would think that WV 2 ALT was an old WV 2 alignment from some point in the past but it definitely was not. In fact, WV 2 used to use CR 21 south from WV 2 ALT's east end!

Creation: WV 2 ALT in Weirton goes back to at least 1980.
Adjustments: None
Improvements: Fully paved upon designation; no mulitlane segments.
Comment: An unposted loop using Market St, Washington St, and Heaslett Ave in southern Weirton.
No idea what the point of this is. The streets do not look like a primary route.
Somewhere along the way, this began being erroneously labeled as US 22 ALT.

WV 2 ALT #1: Appeared in the mid-1950s as new primar yrouting in South Wheeling, running on Wetzel St from Jacob St northeast skirting the edge of downtown S, Wheeling then connecting back to US 250/WV 2 using 33rd St.
In 1974 or 1975, mainline US 250/WV 2 was placed on this routing which was upgraded to freeway.
A ittle bit of Wetzel St still exists from 41st to 33rd.
WV 2 ALT does appear on state officials but is better shown on smaller maps...
