A bridge replacing a 70-year-old span linking Nitro and St. Albans is open for traffic.
The old bridge was demolished earlier this year to make way for the new Dick Henderson Memorial Bridge. It cost nearly $24 million to construct.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and Sen. Joe Manchin were among the dignitaries on hand Friday to mark the opening of the span to traffic. It opened to foot traffic Thursday night.

A new trophy for the annual football rivalry game between St. Albans and Nitro is made from steel from the old span.
