The West Virginia Department of Transportation in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration is seeking comments regarding the bridge replacement of Camp Buckeye Bridge in Greenbrier County. The proposed bridge centerline will be approximately 40 feet downstream from the existing bridge centerline and perpendicular to the stream. This alternative utilizes a 20 mph design speed while slightly improving the existing roadway geometry. This alternative proposes a single span bridge of approximately 130 feet in length with a 15 foot clear width. The new structure will be supported by stub abutments founded on
piling. Right of way involvement will be minimal. It will include permanent right of way for the proposed bridge will be minimal. It will include permanent right of way for the proposed bridge and temporary construction easements for constructions activities. Total estimate cost is $1,654,000.
Camp Buckeye Bridge was built in 1903 by the Brackett Bridge Company. It was determined by the WVDOH to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C as an intact example of an early truss. The WSHPO office has concurred with this finding.
Comments regarding the project will be accepted until October 29, 2010. A printable comment form is included in the Project information PDF file.
