INFORMATIONAL WORKSHOP PUBLIC MEETING
Dunbar Toll Bridge Sidewalk Project
State Project: U320-25/47-0.00 | Federal Project: TEA-2011(065)D
The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) will hold an Informational Workshop Public Meeting on Monday, December 2, 2013, at the Bridgeview Elementary School, located at 5100 Ohio Street, South Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia on the proposed Dunbar Toll Bridge Sidewalk Project. The bridge currently has a sidewalk that terminates at the staircase on the South Charleston side and ends abruptly between travel lanes on the Dunbar side. Neither end has a curb ramp; therefore the pedestrian access is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The purpose of this project is to identify and evaluate options to provide ADA compliant pedestrian access across the Dunbar Toll Bridge. This meeting complies with the public involvement requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
NO FORMAL PRESENTATION WILL BE MADE. The scheduled public meeting 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 project throughout the meeting. A handout (updated 12/2/2013) with project details is available for download and will also be available at the meeting.
The comment period ended on Thursday, January 2, 2014.
