northview overpass bridge use

An informational meeting for the public was held with the West Virginia Division of Highways officials at North View Elementary School on the evening of Thursday, September 20, 2018. Handouts containing project details were available for those who attended the meeting.


This informal meeting gave community members the opportunity to ask questions and submit their comments to DOH officials.


As stated in the Informational Workshop Public Meeting handout there are two (2) build alternatives and one (1) rehabilitation alternative have been evaluated for this project.


  • Alternative #1 (New bridge at existing location w/detour routes) PREFERRED ALTERNATIVE This alternative will replace the existing bridge at its current location while maintaining traffic on a 1.9-mile detour using public routes during construction. Alternative #1 will reconfigure the cloverleaf interchange of the south approach into a 3-way intersection. Modifications and closures to ramps may be included in order to extend the acceleration lane. to All work for this project will be done within the existing right away. Total project cost is #3,742,000. 
  • Alternative #2 (New bridge east of existing location) This alternative consists of replacing the existing bridge directly east of its current location, while maintaining vehicle and pedestrian traffic on the current bridge. Total project cost is $5,038,000. 
  • Alternative #3 (Rehabilitation of existing bridge) Alternative #3 consists of rehabilitation of the existing bridge at its current location, while maintaining vehicular traffic on the existing detour route during construction. The rehabilitation estimates include rehabilitating the beams, replacing the deck, and repairing all the abutments and piers. None of the existing material will remain in place if the bridge is rehabilitated. Total project cost is $5,038,000. 



The Bridge Replacement Study provided to officials recognizes that the current bridge is rated as structurally deficient, while the concrete deck is in serious condition and the substructure is in poor condition. There is also no adequate detour for this bridge.


The projected start date for the North View Overpass is July 2022.


Written comments can be submitted to DOH officials on or before Monday, October 22, 2018
