The Basnettville Bridge replacement was the first to employ the Accelerated Bridge Construction approach in the State of West Virginia and won the 2017 WV ACEC Excellence in Engineering Award. The approach involved a set of plans to construct the new bridge downstream of the existing while maintaining traffic on the original bridge. Then the main road would be closed for a week or less while the existing structure would be demolished, and the new bridge slid into place. The project allowed the bridge to be almost entirely constructed without affecting the travel of the public and only after less than a week of road closure, the public was to use the same route just. The project serves an example and pilot project for future jobs that may warrant this type of approach.
