This old bridge is holding forth in 2021, age 95 years

2013

Drivers have not always heeded the slow down or crash message
the old bridge location has given over the past 95 years, a unique spandrel braced, ribbed arch structure

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 has been rated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete.

West Virginia leads the nation with bad bridges.

The Hur Herald has issued a Freedom of Information Request to obtain the ratings of Calhoun bridges, once readily available.
