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 will be replaced with a new structure. The current bridge was built in 1932 and has reached the end of its service life.
The existing bridge is a single lane structure with raised curb and no railing. Route 675 in this location has 10-foot to 11-foot wide lanes with no shoulders
The existing single lane bridge will be 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 0.07-mile long project extends from 2.33-miles north of Route 682 to 0.33-mile south of Route 42. The project is a bridge replacement project with roadway improvements to connect to existing roadway, no additional improvements are proposed.
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.
The total estimated cost for this project is $2 million, including $307,507 for preliminary engineering, $80,320 for right of way and $1.616 million for construction.

Benefits of Project
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 avoids the eventual closure of the existing structure, which would lead to a detour of several miles and inconveniencing nearby residences.
During Project Construction
In April 2017 the bridge was closed during construction. A detour will be provided and signed appropriately.
