PARKERSBURG — The Memorial Bridge would undergo a nearly two-year rehabilitation project before tolls increase and switch to completely electronic collection under a proposal before Parkersburg City Council.
Colorado-based United Bridge Partners would pay $4 million, take over responsibility for its operations and embark on an approximately 21-month effort to deliver “a fully-rehabilitated bridge … that will be open and operational for a minimum 50-year service life,” according to bid documents.
