National Historic Landmark -- Alderson, West Virginia -- Greenbrier County
The 453-foot Alderson Bridge on the Greenbrier River is one of the longest land-filled concrete bridges ever built in West Virginia. Its elegant arched design was the work of Frank Duff McEnteer, of the Clarksburg Concrete & Steel Bridge Company, an innovator in the use of steel-reinforced concrete. The 21-foot wide bridge was built in 1914 to accommodate automobile and pedestrian traffic. A new bridge downstream opened in 1977, and the Alderson Bridge was thereafter closed to automobiles, though remains open for pedestrian use.
