The replacement bridge is in place over Red Creek on Forest Road 19 in Laneville, although it is not yet ready for either pedestrian or vehicular traffic. The project is ahead of schedule and the bridge could open by mid-October, two weeks ahead of the projected schedule.
The contractor successfully installed the bridge Saturday, October 1. This week they will ensure the bridge is secured in its final position, install the aluminum decking, order road signs, and build the approaches on either side. Then there will be a couple of days for cleaning up the job site, installing the road signs, and other final tasks to finish the job.
We will continue to post updates as they become available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MonongahelaNF. Contact the Petersburg office at (304) 257-4488 for assistance.
