WVDOH Contractor Leaves No Stone Unturned

Crews with Clearwater Construction of Mercer, Pennsylvania, began excavation and water diversion work beneath the historic Elm Grove Stone Bridge this week as part of a $3.8 million renovation project on the structure. While the bridge was initially scheduled to close to traffic last Wednesday, officials with the West Virginia Division of Highways announced that closure has been postponed until next April. The delay will not affect the project’s targeted October 2022 completion date. Clearwater Construction won the contract to remove all backfill, reset any loose stones, do foundation work, refill the stone arches with concrete, and add a new deck and sidewalks to the structure. Built in 1817, the Stone Bridge is the oldest bridge still in use in West Virginia. (Photo by Scott McCloskey)
