This project will rehabilitate the northbound Route 29 (Lee Highway) bridge over Cub Run. The bridge was originally built in 1954.

The planned improvements include:

  • Adding a walkway with barrier and connecting the walkway to the existing sidewalk just north of the bridge
  • Rebuilding the concrete pedestals
  • Replacing the bridge bearings
  • Repairing cracks

The bridge averages 13,000 vehicles a day; Route 29 averages 26,000 combined northbound and southbound vehicles a day at Cub Run.

Estimated Costs
Preliminary Engineering - $700,000
Construction - $3.5 million
Total - $4.2 million

The project is financed with state and federal State of Good Repair funding used for bridges.
