CHARLESTON — Officials with the state Division of Highways said crews are making progress in their efforts to repair an expansion joint on the St. Albans/Nitro Bridge on Interstate 64.

“This is a complex job for any contractor but our DOH bridge crews are doing an amazing job,” State Bridge Engineer Tracy Brown said. “They have worked continuously, in the elements, to make the repairs and we are making good progress.

"To complete these repairs within 48 hours will really be a testament to the perseverance of the hardworking men and women of the Division of Highways.”

Thursday evening, crews worked under the structure replacing the shims and bolts on the expansion joint and since early Friday morning have been building the forms in preparation to pour the concrete.

“Once we complete the forms, we will call for concrete and, in a short time window, will pour, test and when safe, open the road to traffic,” Brown said. “While we still have some major work to do, under these conditions, everyone should be proud of the work our team is doing to make these repairs and re-open this bridge to traffic.”

The DOH also continues to monitor the detour routes and is working with law enforcement to facilitate the flow of traffic.
