Wellsburg Bridge Lift

The Wellsburg Bridge Lift is set to begin on Monday, April 26th, weather permitting.
Conditions look promising for us to begin the two-day float and lift process for the Wellsburg Bridge early Monday morning, April 26. To take full advantage of the forecasted conditions, the current plan is to begin moving the main span of the bridge out into the Ohio River at about 6 a.m.—a little earlier than originally planned. As we continue to emphasize, some factors are beyond our control and, if necessary, we will modify our current schedule. Safety is—and always will be—our top priority.
