The Robert C. Byrd Intermodal Transportation Center


Features: 850-car space, two-bay wide parking structure on six supported levels plus grade, with a pedestrian bridge & National Park Service Visitor Information Center.

Description: The Robert C. Byrd Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC), designed for the Ohio Valley Area Regional Transit Authority (OVARTA) is a key component of the Wheeling National Heritage Plan, providing parking at the Gateway to Wheeling’s Historic Heritage Port. The Heritage Plan includes economic development of the Wheeling waterfront on the Ohio River and development of existing historical and cultural resources. The ITC is located adjacent to the Artisan?s Center, Wheeling Civic Center, Capital Music Hall and Wheeling Community College.

Constructed on caissons bearing on rock, this pre-stressed, pre-cast concrete open parking structure provides a durable low-maintenance facility. The integral concourse is of steel frame construction and provides space for the National Park Service Visitor Center and OVARTA. The facility provides an intermodal link for a regional bus line, interstate buses, local taxi service and bicycles. Funding sources for the facility included the FTA, National Park Service and local City of Wheeling resources. Desman is the Parking Consultant and Structural Engineer of Record.
