5th and 8th Street Bridge Projects



The West Virginia Division of Highways will hold an Informational Workshop on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at the Tennis Center at RitterPark (1571 Ritter Park) in Huntington, Cabell County, West Virginia on the proposed 5th and 8th Street Bridge replacements. This meeting complies with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

​The proposed project will replace the 5th Street and 8th Street bridges, which were constructed in the 1920s and are deteriorating. Both replacements will include widening the sidewalks. The 5th Street replacement will also add a third vehicular lane to better accommodate traffic on WV Route 527. Both of these bridges cross Fourpole Creek and the Memorial Park Trail, and the 8th Street Bridge is immediately adjacent to Ritter Park. WVDOH welcomes your input on environmental concerns, such as impacts to recreational and cultural resources as well as social and economic impacts.

The scheduled open house is from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and the public will be afforded the opportunity to ask questions and give written comments on the projects throughout the meeting. NO FORMAL PRESENTATION WILL BE MADE. A handout with project details will be available for review.

The comment period for this project ended on Friday, June 16, 2017.
