Progress continues on Wellsburg Bridge

Community

Within the next few years, whether you drive down Route 7 or travel on Route 2 drivers and walkers will soon see a new route across the Ohio River.

The new Wellsburg-Brilliant Bridge is coming along on both sides.

There is even a trestle being built in the center for the bridge.

Officials said the 830ft. bridge will cut down the current 17 mile trip between the two cities of Wellsburg and Brilliant, but while cutting down the drive is something to be excited about residents believe the new bridge will also make an economic impact too.

Joe Juszczak, District 6 Construction Engineer said the timeline for this project is still on time and is set to be finished by November 2021.
