How and When to Use the West Virginia Turnpike

There are three mainline toll plazas on the West Virginia Turnpike located at Chelyan, Pax  and Ghent.  There is also one side toll located on Route 19 at the North Beckley Exit (Exit 48). At the Princeton Welcome Center travelers can get assistance with travel information for visiting West Virginia. The Rest Area 69 is open 24-hour and found on the Southbound I-77 at milepost 69.

The Turnpike providers drivers with the most direct route south from the Great Lakes and regions of Canada. It carries Interstate 64 to south of Beckley, where it provides a much needed east-west route. The roadway has many scenic delights and natural vistas such as views from Flat Top Mountain, the Bluestone Gorge.


The Turnpike opened in 1954 and crosses mountainous terrain that required grades of up to five percent and the movement of 33 million cubic yards of earth. The Turnpike climbs from an elevation of 600 feet at Charleston to an elevation of 3400 feet at Flat Top Mountain.  The Turnpike has 116 bridges, that’s more than one every mile.
