Cotton Hill Station Bridge, Spanning New River at State Route 16, Cotton Hill, Fayette County, WV

 
 
description

Summary

Significance: The Cotton Hill Station Bridge is one of two bridges, located in Fayette County, crossing the vast New River. Its construction is a representation of the influence that local and statewide Good Roads Clubs had in improving the transportation system in Fayette County. This additional route, connecting US Route 60 with US Route 19, opened Fayette County to manufacturing and commercial opportunities not available previous to the construction of this safer and more expedient connector. It is also a representation of the influence of the Bureau of Public Roads in the design and placement of rural routes in the late 1920s.
Survey number: HAER WV-55
