The primary supporter of Corridor H is West Virginia Senator Robert C. Byrd (D).

Corridor H is supposed to benefit timber and limestone shipping. Its most visible industry lobbies have been the poultry industry around Moorefield--which has spawned its own set of water pollution problems--and real estate interests around Elkins and Canaan Valley.

Believing in an outdated industrial development concept, some West Virginia politicians have made completion of this supposed "gap" in the Appalachian corridor system one of their main goals.

The WV Department of Transportation Division of Highways has a taxpayer-funded website with Corridor H information from the State's perspective. The site lists many local attractions and vacation spots, many of which will lose their appeal if they are engulfed by urban sprawl along proposed Corridor H.
