Kanawha Bridge Comes Together

September 28, 2010

Only 44 feet remains between two sides of the 760-foot main span of a bridge being built over the Kanawha River, and engineers expect to close the gap in the second half of June.

Six other smaller bridge spans will be connected pier-to-pier over the next year to complete the 2,950-foot Interstate-64 bridge between Dunbar and South Charleston.

"This is the first time that West Virginia has built this type of structure," Gary Mullins, area engineer in construction for District One of the state Division of Highways.
