This project replaces the Route 682 bridge over Pleasant Run in Rockingham County.  The current structure built in 1945 is deficient and is nearing the end of its service life.  To the east of the bridge is a railroad crossing.  The terrain contains curves and hills.

This project is about 0.4-mile long and extends from 0.2-mile west of Route 867 to 0.2-mile east of Route 867.

The new bridge will be south of the current structure and will be 40 feet wide and approximately 50 feet long, with two 12-foot travel lanes and eight-foot shoulders. The roadway will be leveled out at the railroad crossing. Curves on Route 682 will also be improved. The intersections with Route 867 and Route 989 will be improved.

Project plans are anticipated to receive approval in spring 2015. Right of way activities will begin in summer 2016 with construction in fall 2020.

In 2014 Route 682 had an average daily traffic count of 3043 vehicles per day.  By the design year of 2040 the estimated average daily traffic volume is 3500 vehicles per day. 

The total estimated cost for this project is $4,548,973, including $573,854 for preliminary engineering, $500,000 for right of way and $3,475,119 for construction.
