PARKERSBURG — The company looking to buy the Memorial Bridge pitched Parkersburg City Council on Thursday on an approximately $50 million rehabilitation plan to keep the span operational for at least 50 years.
After hearing the proposal from United Bridge Partners, council members sitting as the Committee of the Whole unanimously voted to move forward with an ordinance approving it next month.
