West Virginia DOT opens new McClanahan Bridge in Putnam County

April 27, 2020

The bridge is one of the state's Roads to Prosperity projects

The West Virginia DOT (WVDOT) Division of Highways recently announced the opening of the McClanahan Bridge in Putnam County, which is one of the state's Roads to Prosperity projects.

The bridge opened to traffic this past Friday afternoon. 

“I promised West Virginians that my Roads to Prosperity program would modernize our transportation system and boost our economy through billions of dollars in new construction and maintenance work on our existing roads and bridges,” Gov. Jim Justice said in a statement. “Today, another one of the hundreds of construction projects made possible by Roads To Prosperity has been completed, and we are excited that this bridge that provides critical access in Putnam County has been replaced and is open again to our motorists.”

The McClanahan Bridge crosses the Poca River along County Route 31 in Lanham. This Roads to Prosperity project is funded through the second round of GARVEE Bonds and was a design-build project awarded to Kelly Paving of Williamstown in April 2018 with a bid of $2.28 million.
“Our transportation system improvements are continuing every day thanks to Gov. Justice’s visionary Roads To Prosperity plan,” WVDOT Secretary Byrd White said in a statement. “This project is another great example of our commitment to this historic construction program established by the governor.”
The contract amount also includes the replacement of the Harmons Creek bridge along County Route 38. Harmons Creek bridge was used as a detour during the McClanahan Bridge replacement and work to replace that structure will begin soon.
