THIS OLE BRIDGE - Crazy Curve Nicut Structure Crumbling

(04/11/2013)

Drivers have not always heeded the slow down or crash message
the old bridge location has given over the past 87 years

This ole Nicut Road bridge has a case of the crumbles, partly because of the hundreds of times drivers have failed to negotiate it.

The 1926 bridge was built when county
commissions were still in the road business

It wasn't lined up well with the highway, located in a sharp curve.

It is one of several Calhoun bridges that is on the list rated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete.

West Virginia is a national leader with such bridges.
