The WV Department of Highways gave a Notice To Proceed to the contractor, BBR Drilling Company, of Belmont, OH, in November, to begin the first phase of the Chestnut Street Project. The project cost is $497,928.40. "The city is ecstatic that the first phase is underway, stated Martin Howe, City Manager." Howe also added, this project has been an ongoing issue and we realize there will be more phases in the future to complete the project."
To date the contractor has been making progress on the first phase as a lot of the vegetation has been removed to allow for the installation of the steel beams for the roadway support. Following are some photos taken 12-7-12.
