Parkersburg Bridge Partners (PBP) is a local subsidiary of United Bridge Partners, which funds, designs, builds, owns or leases, and operates private toll bridges across the United States. United Bridge Partners’ mission is to creatively deliver and operate transportation infrastructure for America’s communities.
Parkersburg Bridge Partners has entered into an Acquisition and Development Agreement (ADA) with the City of Parkersburg and committed to fully rehabilitate, own and operate the Parkersburg Memorial Bridge for at least 50 years. Parkersburg Bridge Partners does not simply finance an infrastructure project and outsource all other functions to third parties. We manage the entire project delivery process and, over the long term, perform operations, maintenance, customer service and tolling back office activities in-house. PBP strives to become an active, positive member of the community and good neighbor. We will open a Parkersburg office and hire a local general manager and team. Our national caliber design and construction team will use, to the extent possible, local labor and suppliers during the modernization and rehabilitation of Memorial Bridge.
Parkersburg Bridge Partners has built a strong team of specialists in bridge design, construction, operations and maintenance to deliver this project. Our local partners include:
During the bridge rehabilitation period, PBP will contract with the City of Parkersburg for maintenance and tolling operations to ensure a seamless transition.
Parkersburg Bridge Partners will hire a local general manager, operations and customer service team for this project, and Kokosing Construction Company is committed to using union contractors and workers. We have been endorsed by the Affiliated Construction Trades Council and five local trades groups.
