St. Albans Bridge Demolition

Special to HuntingtonNews.Net

Demolition of the Dick  Henderson bridge in St. Albans that crosses the Kanawha River continues as girder sections are removed in video provided by the WV Department of Transportation.

The bridge was built in 1934 by McClintic Marshall Corporation of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  The bridge consists of a three span cantilever Warren through truss with an overall length of 1,367 feet.  

    The purpose of the project is to replace the existing superstructure of the bridge to meet current design standards, including suitable weight limits to better serve the residential, commercial and business community needs of the cities of Saint Albans and Nitro.

The new bridge will open sometimes in November 2013. Thumbnails of the demo are available at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wvdot/sets/72157632483584825
