The Ravenswood Bridge carries U.S. Route 33 over the Ohio River between Ravenswood, West Virginia and Ohio and was originally designated Ohio State Route 824.

Constructed in 1981, the Cantilevered Warren through truss was designed to connect U.S. Route 33 at Interstate 77 in West Virginia to a relocated U.S. Route 33 in Meigs County. It connected to Ohio State Route 338 until the super-two freeway U.S. Route 33 relocation was completed from the Pomeroy bypass east to the Ravenswood Bridge in December 2003.(1) Upon completion of the road, the Ohio State Route 338 designation was decommissioned, as well as Ohio State Route 824, and the U.S. Route 33 designation was applied to the bridge.
