Clifford Hollow Bridge is a four-lane, 1,522-foot (464 m) long bridge[1] in Hardy County, West Virginia. It carries Corridor H (U.S. Route 48 and Route 55) across Clifford Hollow approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) east of Moorefield.

The bridge was completed in 2003. It rises nearly 300 feet (91 m) above the valley below and is supported by a girder-substring system with end spans of 210 feet (64 m) and four interior spans at 275.5 feet (84.0 m).[1]

Clifford Hollow Bridge was awarded winning long-span steel bridge in the 2005 National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) Prize Bridge Award Competition.[1]
