The New River is an unmarked river once freely running through the former U.S. state of West Virginia.


The New River once flowed freely through West Virginia but the river itself has mostly dried up. It shares its name with a nearby bridge, resort, and local ale.


The dry river bed meets the Ohio River to the west, moving eastward, past the convergence of the Flatwoods River, moving underneath the New River Gorge Bridge, and ending underneath I-59 near Charleston.


The New River appears in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

The New River is based on the real world river of the same name, which begins in the state of North Carolina, flows through Virginia, and enters West Virginia. From there, it meets with the Gauley River and turns into the Kanawha River.
