Durbin Truss Bridge Project

Durbin Truss Bridge

Update 1/11/17: NEPA Clearance Document

The Durbin Truss Bridge Project is located on County Route 250/13 over the West Fork of the Greenbrier River in Pocahontas County, West Virginia.   The WVDOH is evaluating alternatives to determine whether it is economically feasible and safe to maintain the current access on County Route 250/13.  

Three alternatives are being evaluated for this project.
• Alternative #1- Proposes constructing a new bridge at existing location.
• Alternative #2- Proposes rehabilitating the existing bridge.
• Alternative #3- Proposes a no build option and removing the existing bridge.

Considering the present closure of the bridge, the existing bridge condition, and the availability of an existing one-mile detour, it is recommended that Alternative #3 be considered as the preferred alternative.  This alternative recommends the removal of the existing bridge.
