Under Construction: Route 134 Bridge Replacement

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project will replace the existing aging northbound bridge on Route 134 (Hampton Highway/Magruder Boulevard) over Brick Kiln Creek, located at the border of York County and the city of Hampton. The construction limits on Route 134 will span approximately 0.50 mile, between Tabb Smith Trail and the Route 172 (Commander Shepard Boulevard) intersection.

Originally constructed in 1930, the northbound bridge will be updated to meet current design standards with new bridge approaches and wider shoulders added. The new bridge will have two 12-foot travel lanes with a 10-foot right shoulder and a 6-foot left shoulder. 

Also included in the project scope, crews will be relocating and drilling a 20-inch water main line under Brick Kiln Creek.

Maintenance on the southbound bridge was completed separately from this project.

Traffic Impacts:

As of the week of Oct. 14, a single-lane closure has been implemented southbound within the project limits on Route 134. As of Feb. 27, to accommodate northbound traffic during the temporary northbound bridge closure for demolition and reconstruction, northbound and southbound traffic has been shifted to a single lane in each direction on the southbound bridge. A long-term closure to through traffic will also be in place on Old Armistead Avenue at the Magruder Boulevard intersection during this traffic shift; however, access will be maintained for local businesses and residences located on North/Old Armistead Avenue.

Motorists will be advised of any additional lane closures or traffic shifts that may occur during the project. All construction work is dependent upon weather conditions.
