DOH Replaces Four County Bridges


CHARLESTON—Replacements of bridges in Berkeley, Hampshire, McDowell, and Roane counties have allowed the Division of Highways to remove current weight and other restrictions.

Weight restrictions have been removed from a Berkeley County bridge carrying West Virginia Route 45 over Back Creek just miles north of Berkeley County Route 7/25 at Glengary.  Prior to replacement, silhouette postings limited the weights of various trucks and commercial vehicles permitted to cross the span.

Weight restrictions have also been removed from a Hampshire County bridge carrying Hampshire County Route 3 over the Little Cacapon River just east of Hampshire County Route 50/9 junction at Higginsville.  The weights of various trucks and commercial trucks were limited, vehicles were required to maintain 100-foot spacing, and observe a 20 mph speed limit.

A 15-ton weight restriction has been removed from the McDowell County Route 13/1 bridge over Tug fork, just west of WV Route 103 at Wilcoe and another 15-ton weight restriction has been removed from the Roane County bridge carrying Roane County 29/1 over Granny Creek just east of Roane County Route 29/2 at Wallback.
