Big Wheeling Creek Closed to Paddlers as I-70 Construction Resumes

Several signs were recently posted along the shore of Big Wheeling Creek in the Pleasanton and Mount de Chantal sections of Wheeling warning kayakers and boaters to exit the creek because the water trail is closed ahead due to the demolition and reconstruction of the Fulton Bridges. Swank Construction positioned the signs along the creek at the direction of the West Virginia Division of Highways as part of the I-70 Bridges Project. The signs are expected to stay in place throughout the course of the nearly two-year project, according to a Swank official.
