Thanks to the West Virginia Department of Highways and their contractors, I was able to get a close-up look at the anti-icing overlay being installed on the Little Sandy Bridges on I-79 near Elkview this morning. Much like the Carter/Fort Hill/Oakwood bridge on I-64 in Charleston, the Little Sandy Bridges' curved configuration on a 70mph stretch of highway makes it another notorious hotspot for ice-related car accidents in the winter.

UPDATE 8/9/08: Photos, video and more details have been posted here.
