Keyser-McCoole Bridge

All erection work self-performed by Kokosing.

Inside the Project

The $24 million Keyser-McCoole Bridge Project is part of the US Route 220 corridor connecting the towns of Keyser, West Virginia and McCoole, Maryland.

The 10 span, 0.4 mile-long bridge spans the Potomac River and consists of over 5,000 cubic yards of superstructure concrete, supported by 5.5 million pounds of structural steel. A total of 95, 6 ½ foot-tall steel plate girders weighing 70,000 pounds each were individually hoisted into place. Once set, each girder was secured with over 27,000 bolted connections.  The project spotlighted Kokosing’s ironworkers and company-owned equipment, as all of the project’s erection work was self-performed.

This project was awarded the 2012 Quality Concrete Award for Structural Concrete Excellence by the Contractors Association of West Virginia and the West Virginia Division of Highways.
