About the Project
This project will replace the existing three-span bridge with a new two-span bridge in Isle of Wight County. The existing bridge was built in 1945 with steel beams which show rust and deterioration at many locations. The existing bridge has posted restricted access for vehicles over 10 tons and has 15.4 sufficiency rating. The new bridge will be using 21-foot prestressed concrete slab spans. The project also includes approach roadway work and railings.
This project is currently under the Right-of-Way stage. The contractor has submitted plans for a Pre-Advertisement Conference (PAC) review. This is an inter-disciplinary milestone for the project team to review the final plans, bid documents and make any minor adjustments to the plans. Comments from different sections have been submitted to the contractor. The construction fixed completion date has yet to be determined.
