Work Underway on W.Va. Rail Bridge

Work has begun on constructing a bridge that will enable the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley to restore rail service between Cass and Durbin in West Virginia.

The bridge will span Trout Run and the project involves the West Virginia Department of Highways, the West Virginia State Rail Authority, D&G and contractors.

Thus far workers have been drilling holes into the bedrock and pouring foundations on the Durbin side of the bridge.

Equipment is is now being staged for work on the Cass side and can only reach the bridge site by traveling 15 miles by rail.

While drilling and foundation work is being performed on the Cass end of the bridge workers will be building forms for the abutment on the Durbin end.
