The 100 year plus Market Street Bridge is a historic landmark spanning the Ohio River, located on the banks of Steubenville, Ohio and Follansbee, West Virginia. It went through a complete structural and visual renovation, and was accentuated with all new lighting. The public was involved in the bridge color selection through an online poll on the WVDOT website. The winning colors were Mountaineer Blue and Gold, representing West Virginia state colors.

 

The Market Street Bridge is a historic landmark spanning the Ohio River, connecting Steubenville, Ohio and Follansbee, West Virginia. It is a steel suspension bridge spanning a length of 1,794 feet and built in 1905. After hearing reports that the bridge might be closing, city councils on both sides of the river got together and petitioned for the bridge to be repaired and beautified.

Work begins in 2010 cleaning and repairing the bridge’s steel structure, applying a penetrant sealer, as well as special calcium sulfonate paint.
