WVDOTThe West Virginia Division of Highways got work under way on Friday, March 27, on the rehabilitation of 19 bridges in the Charleston area along Interstate 64. The project begins at the Eugene Carter Memorial Bridge (also known as Fort Hill Bridge) and ends where the Brooks Street on-ramp enters the interstate.

Numerous expansion joints will be replaced, a Latex Modified Concrete will be applied to bridge decks, and several cathodic protection systems will be replaced. Four structures utilize the cathodic system, which is a technique used to control corrosion of metal in the bridge deck.

Traffic control set up will take place over the next three weekends with actual construction work expected to begin in early April.

WvDOT noted lane closures expected between milemarkers 57 and 59 from today through Thursday as follows:

Monday, March 30, 8 p.m. continuing through 6 a.m.: Two left lanes closed EB, fast lane closed WB.

Tuesday, March 31, same time: Single lane closure EB and WB.

Wednesday, April 1, same time: Slow lanes closed EB and WB.
