Market Street Bridge Closed to Traffic

The Market Street Bridge (located in Center Wheeling) is closed until further notice after an overnight fire underneath the span caused damage to the structure.

The Wheeling Fire Department was called to the bridge around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 7 after a homeless encampment caught fire. 

WFD notified the West Virginia Division of Highways, who will preform an inspection of the span. Motorists are advised to use the Main Street or Chapline Street bridge for a detour.
