Gauley Bridge - Fayette Co

Located on Rt 60 about 20 miles southeast of Charleston. It's where the New and Gauley Rivers join to form the Kanawha River. Population 738. Beautiful area!

Historical Marker located on Rt 60 on the east end of the town and bridge.




View of the confluence. New River is closest and to the left (flowing away from you) - Gauley River is flowing in from the right side (under bridge) - Kanawha River is in the distance on the left side flowing away from you.




View downstream at the beginning of the Kanawha River.
