Project Description

Currently there is no direct access from a public or private road to property owned by the National Youth Science Foundation, Inc.(NYSF), located approximately 1 mile south of the Canaan Valley Institute facility and 2 miles upstream along the Blackwater River from the town of Davis. The NYSF is a non-profit organization that plans to construct the National Center for Youth Science Education on the property. The closest public road is Tucker County Route 32/18, locally referred to as Camp 70 Road, which is maintained by the West Virginia Division of Highways.

The National Youth Science Bridge project proposes to construct a new single span one lane bridge and roadway approaches to serve the NYSF’s proposed National Center for Youth Science Education. The proposed bridge would carry an unnamed access road from Tucker County Route 32/18, Camp 70 Road over the Blackwater River northeast of Davis in Tucker County, WV.
