On Monday, Jan. 7, the Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge, also known as the Nitro/St. Albans Bridge, will be closed to traffic.

The bridge is being replaced. The project is scheduled to be completed in November of 2013. A map of the alternate routes, can be accessed by going to the WVDOT website, www.transportation.wv.gov, and clicking on the Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge Project.

The West Virginia Department of Transportation will provide periodic updates, along with photos and videos of the bridge replacement, on the website, so the public can follow progress of the project.
