The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is seeking comments regarding the replacement of the Onego Bridge (circled on this map). The project consists of replacing the existing bridge with a new structure on the existing location. Right of way will be needed for a wider bridge and temporary construction easements will be needed for staging. Traffic will be maintained one lane at a time during construction.
FHWA and WVDOT will process this project using a Section 4(f) De Minimis Impact finding on the take of historic property. Below is a photograph showing the existing right of way and the proposed additional property take.
The comment period ended on August 31, 2015.
