Construction work is on schedule for the new Donald M. Legg Memorial Bridge on Interstate 64 to open to traffic later this fall. The new bridge is the first half of a project to replace the current interstate bridge over the Kanawha River between Nitro and St. Albans.
The 1,400-foot bridge is part of a widening project between the bridge and the US 35 interchange. The approximately $225 million project will widen I-64 from four to six lanes and includes replacing the existing bridge and five more bridges between Nitro and US 35.
The project is funded through Gov. Jim Justice’s Roads to Prosperity highway construction and maintenance program.
