Notes
Survey number HAER WV-44
Significance: This bridge, spanning the Little Kanawha River at Parkersburg, was constructed in 1907. Originally built to carry street cars across the river, it was adapted to automobile traffic as times changed. Consisting of five steel girder spans and three simple span through trusses, it is an excellent example of an early 20th Century steel bridge.
