Blennerhassett Bridge Opens
(2008-06-13)
(WOUB) - The longest and most expensive bridge in West Virginia history opens to motorists today.

The bridge over the Ohio River and Blennerhassett Island at Belpre is the last of many four-lane improvement projects on the Appalachian Highway, U-S Route 50 corridor between Cincinnati and Clarksburg, West Virginia.

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin and other officials will participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of Appalachian Corridor D.

The nearly $136 million price tag is being shared by West Virginia, Ohio and the federal government.
