Beulah Road over the Dulles Toll Road
|Bridge Rehabilitation in Fairfax County|
Project at a Glance
About the Project
This project rehabilitated the Beulah Road bridge over the Dulles Toll Road and the Dulles Access Road (Route 267).
VDOT closed the bridge to traffic for several days in Nov. 2010 when an oversized truck traveling on the Dulles Toll Road struck and badly damaged the structural steel under the bridge. The bridge's low vertical clearance over the eastbound lanes of the Dulles Toll Road had been a recurring problem for many years.
Replacing the bridge was estimated to cost $40 million. To lower the cost, VDOT opted to repair the bridge by replacing the span over the eastbound lanes to increase the vertical clearance. The bridge was also widened to provide much needed shoulders and a pedestrian sidewalk.
Repairs and widening began in May 2012. The new shoulders and sidewalk connect with existing sidewalks along Beulah Road, so pedestrians and bicyclists can safely cross the Dulles corridor highways.
