Notes
Survey number HAER WV-46
Significance: This bridge, spanning the Kanawha River at Chelyan, was constructed in 1928-29. The construction of the bridge showed how the volume of traffic increased as advances were made in the automobile industry and the automobile became more in demand. It was also evidence of the increase in coal production. Consisting of seventeen spans, it is an excellent example of an early twentieth century steel bridge.
