Governor Jim Justice has approved the award of the Cheat River Bridge contract to Triton Construction, which bid just under US$148 million for the project.

The 1,005m-long, four-lane bridge is being built as part of the Corridor H project. It will link the 24km stretch of Corridor H between Kerens and Parsons with the section between Parsons and Davis. When Corridor H is fully completed, it will connect Interstate 79 in Weston in West Virginia to Interstate 81 in Strasburg, Virginia.
