Rockingham County - Route 867 (North River Road) Pleasant Run Bridge
Project at a Glance
Estimated Cost – $1,833,892
Lengths and Limits
0.1760-mile long From: 0.322-miles west of Route 693 To: 0.145-mile west of Route 693
The proposed project is located on Route 867 (North River Road) at the bridge over Pleasant Run in Rockingham County. The project is 0.1760-mile long with its limits extending from 0.322-mile west of Route 693 to 0.145-mile west of Route 693
The proposed project will replace the deteriorated Pleasant Run bridge.
The existing bridge is a 13-foot wide single-lane structure and has a posted weight limit of 25 tons. The adjacent roadway has two nine-foot lanes with narrow shoulders and ditches.
The new bridge will be 75-feet long and have two 10-foot lanes. The shoulder width will be two-feet wide. The alignment is proposed to be shifted to the south in order to avoid a detour during construction and improve the overall roadway alignment and bridge approaches.
During construction two-way traffic will be maintained, with occasional lane closures.
The traffic volumes at this location in 2010 were 360 vehicles per day. The projected traffic volume in 2039 is 500 vehicles per day, of which four percent will be trucks.
The total estimated cost for this project is $1.8 million, including $625,000 for preliminary engineering, $150,000 for right of way and $1.05 million for construction.
Preliminary Engineering – Spring 2013
Right of Way – Mid 2015
