$31 Million West Virginia Project Starts As North Carolina Bridge Work Ends
(3rd Quarter 2006)
Top and Above: Work on V&Gs eight-mile I-540 project, part of an outer beltway around Raleigh, NC, is nearing completion. Bridge work was managed by Superintendent Jim Bower, who is now overseeing construction of a Corridor H bridge in Hardy County, WV.

As bridge work on Vecellio & Grogans I-540 job in Raleigh, NC, winds down, another bridge project has started in Moorefield, WV, under V&Gs largest contract ever for a single bridge.
The $30.9 million project calls for construction of a four-lane, 2,231-ft. bridge over the south branch of the Potomac River in Hardy County. Completion is due by June 2009.
The bridge will cross acres of farmland and rise 80 feet over the river to join newly built sections of Corridor H, a divided highway extending east from Weston, with plans calling for it to eventually reach the Virginia state line.
V&G has worked on numerous sections of Corridor H in recent years, including work in Hardy County.
