The West Virginia Department of Transportation, Division of Highways (WVDOH) is in the process of considering alternatives for the future replacement of the County Line Bridge, which crosses Wheeling Creek in , Marshall County.

The County Line Bridge was constructed in 1960, as a four simple span girder bridge. It has a total length of 192 feet 3 inches. Span One is 43’7”, Span Two is 49’5”, Span Three is 49’6”, and Span Four is 44’4”. The clear width of the bridge is 13 feet and 4 inches. Current traffic data (2009) indicates the average daily traffic (ADT) as 1,700 vehicles per day and it is projected to be 2,400 in 2029. The bridge has a silhouette posting weight limit of 16 tons and has a current sufficiency rating of 21.8 out of 100.

The Public Meeting will be Thursday, September 16, 2010 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Elm Grove Elementary School, 85 Mil Acres Drive, Wheeling WV.
