(Shepherd University to hold forum April 17 on possible blasting)

Shepherdstown, WV--Shepherd University will hold a public forum on Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Reynolds Hall auditorium for the purpose of receiving comments regarding the University's consideration for blasting to be utilized in the West Virginia Route 480 pedestrian underpass project, specifically in the area of the project detour through property owned by the Bavarian Inn.

Shepherd University has an easement through a formal, written grant of conveyance from the Bavarian Inn to the University to complete this project. The contractor which has been engaged for the underpass project construction has identified rock issues which are believed to require blasting for removal in a safe and expeditious manner.

Documentation which would otherwise be provided to the Shepherdstown Planning Commission will be available for public review.
