Progress Update

As of January 10, 2014, 57.10% of the work is completed and this project is on schedule.

Traffic lanes remains shifted on NB & SB Rte. 28 for median work on Rte. 28 bridge over I-66. Completed the demolition of the concrete bridge deck median and worked on the forming of the same area (concrete bridge deck median) for the SB Rte. 28 left turn lanes extension work. Completed the jacking and blocking/bearing replacement at Abutment ‘A’ for the SB lanes. Jacking and blocking/bearing assembly replacement commenced at Pier for the NB lanes. Also, began installing new cross frames in the median section, connecting both the NB & SB Rte. 28 Bridges.

About the Project

This project will extend the left turn lanes for Route 28 Southbound to I-66 Eastbound. Crews will demolish the raised median on the bridge, adjust the drainage and upgrade the median to VDOT standards.

VDOT’s NRO Traffic Engineering Section developed near-term, low-cost solutions to the safety problems associated with severe traffic congestion on Route 28.

An analysis of the before and after conditions showed that overall congestion dramatically improved saving over four minutes per vehicle during both the morning and afternoon peaks. Also, during an 8-month study period, there was a 40 percent reduction in traffic crashes in this area.

The $4.1 million project has started and is scheduled to be completed in May 2014.
