Back in 2018, the bridge was dedicated to Harrison County native Michael Angiulli. He was heavily involved in the community by starting the North View Athletics Club and building one of the original town welcome signs. Angiulli was also a Clarksburg firefighter and World War II veteran. 

Along with the bridge replacement, the DOH also approved a project to build a walking trail in Shinnston City Park. The trail will cost $41,992.13.
