Justice Awards Contract for Interstate 70 Bridges

August 5th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Jim Justice and leaders from the West Virginia Department of Transportation announced today that the contract for work upgrading more than two dozen bridges along the Wheeling corridor of Interstate 70 has been awarded to Swank Construction Company.

The project is one of the most significant of Gov. Justice’s Roads to Prosperity program.

“At the end of the day, there’s no way in the world I could be any happier; our state’s moving,” Gov. Justice said. “I can’t say this enough times; we’re on it. And our people with Highways are on it.”

The Governor made the announcement during a public event at Heritage Port Park in Wheeling, which overlooks the Fort Henry Bridge crossing the Ohio River; one of 26 total bridges in the greater Wheeling/Ohio County area set to receive work as part of the project.
