Dents Run Bridge





Nearly 13 feet wide and 40 feet long, this bridge was completed in 1889. 

W.A. Loar built the abutments and William and Joseph Mercer built the 

superstructure, using a kingpost truss.  The bridge is located on Monongalia 

County 43/3 north of US 19 near Westover.  A contract for repairs to the 

trusses, new floor beams and deck installed was recently awarded to Hoke 

Brothers Contracting, Inc. of Union, WV for $185,684.
