The Jennings Randolph Bridge, built in 1977, is the largest Pratt truss bridge in North America. It spans 754 feet (230 m) over the Ohio River between Chester, West Virginia and East Liverpool, Ohio. The bridge is located on U.S. Route 30 and is named after U.S. Senator Jennings Randolph (D-WV). It replaced the 1897 Chester Bridge.
The bridge has recently[when?] undergone painting work where North Star Painting Co. Inc. utilized a three-part system of organic zinc, intermediate coat of aluminum carbothane, and epoxy top coat that was selected by the West Virginia Division of Highways.
