Project Details

This is project is a 360′, 6 span bridge that has been designed to be worked in phases so that there is only slight interruption to the traffic. Before construction could begin on this project, a 300′ causeway had to be installed across the Coal River. Phase I consisted of retrofitting anchor points at each pier in order to hold the current bridge in place while the existing expansions were removed. Then, the new expansions were poured back with solid concrete. Beginning in Phase II, traffic was switched to the existing bridge where demo started on the opposite lane. Once demo was completed, new concrete hammer heads were constructed on the existing piers and new beam seats on the existing abutments were poured.

This project is still ongoing and will be tentatively complete by Fall of 2022.
