Summers County traffic anticipated for Lilly bridge construction

SUMMERS COUNTY -

If you're driving through Summers County in the next few months, you might want to prepare for traffic.

The Lilly Bridge outside of Hinton is being replaced. The Department of Highways is preparing to pave a road around the pull-off area to divert traffic.

Summers County Commissioner Jack Woodrum said the bridge currently does not allow for a heavy truck to pass by.

This bridge is important because it's an artery for 64 for scenic drives from Princeton to Summers County. It allows access to Bluestone Lake and Bluestone State Park and Pipestone State Park," said Summers County Commissioner Jack Woodrum.

Construction will continue throughout the Fall season.
