This project is located on Route 675 (Stoney Creek Road) in Shenandoah County west of the Town of Edinburg, between Interstate 81 and Route 42. The bridge over Stoney Creek was replaced with a new structure. The old bridge was built in 1932 and had reached the end of its service life.
The previous bridge was a single lane structure with raised curb and no railing. Route 675 in this location had 10-foot to 11-foot wide lanes with no shoulders
The old single-lane bridge was replaced with a new, two-lane structure in approximately the same location. The new bridge is approximately 30-feet wide and 105-feet long. Both approaches will consist of two, 11-foot lanes with 3-foot shoulders.
This project is slightly less than 0.1 mile in length. It extends from 2.3 miles north of Route 682 to 0.3 mile south of Route 42.
The current average daily traffic volume is 580 vehicles per day. This number is projected to be 600 vehicles per day by the year 2038.
This project improves safety on Route 675 by replacing a deteriorating bridge structure with a new bridge that is able to support modern traffic both in volume and vehicle weights. Replacing the bridge avoided the eventual closure of the existing structure, which would lead to a detour of several miles and inconveniencing nearby residences.
