$19M bridge project underway in Narrows


NARROWS (WVVA) - Crews are hard at work to complete a much-needed bridge in the Giles County town of Narrows.

The bridge -- located on Fleshman Road -- will provide the only direct route into Narrows.

The new bridge is replacing an older span that ranked poorly in safety ratings and caused fear among some motorists, according to Narrows Mayor Clayton Davis.

Davis says the bridge project has been years in the making. He's hopeful the new, safer, bridge will help spur local business growth.

The $19 million project was made possible by a federal stimulus grant. The bridge is expected to be completed in the fall.
