A travel advisory has been issued ahead of Bridge Day on October 21.
US 19 north and south across the New River Gorge Bridge will be closed from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Bridge Day.
The best detour coming from the north is to take US 60W at Anstead, and then take WV 16S to reconnect with US 19.
If you’re coming from the south, take West Virginia route 16 north from Fayetteville to Anstead.
However, the best route is to bypass US 19 altogether via I-79 or I-77.
