Knee Deep: Crews Putting Finishing Touches on Spruce Street Bridge Deckwork
Crews with Kokosing Construction Co. of Westerville, Ohio, are shown making the final concrete pour and road adjustments on the Spruce Street Bridge in Bethlehem on Monday. The bridge, which spans over Interstate 470 and closed to traffic in October, is expected to reopen to motorists by the end of the month. While crews hoped to have the work done earlier this year, the overall project was delayed due to inclement weather and the COVID-19 crisis, according to an official with the West Virginia Division of Highways. The Spruce Street Bridge project is part of a $6.1 million plan to re-deck the span and the Chapel Road Bridge, which was re-decked last year.
