Old WV 93 Was Steep

Before Corridor "H" if you wanted to go from Bismark to Scheer, you had to descend this steep, windy hill on West Virginia Route 93. This road had been improved, in the sense that it's smooth and wide, but it was still quite steep and windy -- for a major route driven by coal-hauling trucks. Corridor "H" changed that totally.
