Berkley Springs US 522 Bypass - Morgan County, WV

Published by Hank Gottschalk

Concrete Pipe & Precast, LLC is providing over 11,000 Linear Feet of Reinforced Concrete Pipe in sizes from 15” diameter up to 84” diameter, including several sections of 98” x 63” (78” diameter round equivalent) Horizontal Elliptical Concrete Pipe for the long awaited Berkley Springs Bypass project. The project also calls for several precast structures as well as 3 each 84” diameter class 5 Pipe Elbows and one 84” x 36” Prefabricated Pipe Tee.

In October 2020, Trumbull Corporation was awarded the $59.8 million contract to build the 3.4-mile, four-lane US 522 bypass around Berkeley Springs, from just south of Berkeley Springs to WV 9. The project includes three bridges, three intersections and a new interchange with WV 9.

Highways officials had long hoped to upgrade WV 522 to ease traffic congestion around Berkeley Springs. The existing road carries about 13,400 vehicles a day, with about 30 percent of them being trucks.
Initial construction was originally delayed because of several “hurdles” but ground breaking and relocation of the utilities are now underway.

Trumbull plans to begin road construction on the south end of the bypass route and move north in a linear fashion. Trumbull may also start work on three bridges ahead of the roadway construction.

Trumbull Corporation is a prominent industry leader in heavy highway and heavy civil construction services across the Mid-Atlantic States. Their previous work includes 70 Miles of Highway Constructed and 50 Million Cubic Yards of Excavation in the Last 10 Years.
