About the Project
This project replaced the Gleedsville Road bridge over Sycolin Creek. While the 77-year-old bridge was not unsafe, it was built to standards that are no longer used today, and requires continual inspections and repairs.
The new bridge includes two 11-foot lanes and two four-foot paved shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge and approaches were raised about two feet to improve hydraulic performance at the stream crossing.
