Comment: WV 251 is assigned to the Wheeling Suspension Bridge which opened in 1849. This bridge carried US 40-250 until about 1957.
Official maps back to at least 1973 show this as a route but unlabeled.
WV 251 is limited to 2 tons for a vehicle and wehicles must maintain a separation. This is because the bridge was designed for the horse and buggy days.
