Scatterday Has A Vision ... - Wheeling Intelligencer

Robert Scatterday has a vision that begins in Wheeling and ends in Mount Vernon, Va.

Included in this vision is a bicycle, a rider and a strip of pavement that allows a person to pedal from Wheeling to George Washington's homestead without getting off a dedicated cycling trail.

But progress in Ohio County is putting part of Scatterday's vision into question, as the re-opening of the Tunnel Ridge coal mine on Short Creek Road could lead to the closing of a section of Wheeling's Heritage Trail.

Tunnel Ridge owns the coal loadout area on W.Va. 2 just north of the Pike Island Locks and Dam, and 1,470 feet of the trail system crosses the coal company's property. Tunnel Ridge currently is in the process of renovating the property for its loadout area.
