About the Project
This project will replace the one-lane Aden Road truss bridge over the Norfolk-Southern Railroad with a two-lane bridge.
The existing wrought-iron truss bridge was built in 1882 by Keystone Bridge Company for the Virginia Midland Railway, and was relocated to its current location sometime between 1904 and 1928. The bridge is now owned by Norfolk Southern and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is structurally deficient, and has a posted weight limit of 6 tons
Options will be explored for the bridge's preservation. VDOT will own and maintain the new bridge.
Aden Road currently carries about 2,800 vehicles a day. By 2036 the bridge is expected to carry 4,900 vehicles a day.
