Project Details

This project proposes to build a new two-lane bridge on Route 11 in Shenandoah County over Cedar Creek. Currently a separate bridge for southbound Route 11 traffic and a separate bridge for northbound Route 11 traffic serve travelers in this location.  This project proposes to build a new two-lane bridge on Route 11 in over Cedar Creek and remove both northbound and southbound existing bridges. 

Currently Route 11 across Cedar Creek is a four-lane divided roadway that cuts through the Cedar Creek and Belle Grove Park.  This four-lane roadway transitions to a three- lane roadway several hundred feet north of the project.

The proposed new two-lane bridge and alignment will be built in the median parallel to the existing southbound bridge, and leaves open the possibility to widen to four lanes in the future if necessary. A third center turn-lane on the bridge is not warranted as there are very few traffic generators within the project limits. The approaches to the new bridge will also be realigned. In addition, this project will correct the curve on the southbound approach that has experienced crash problems.

Construction is tentatively scheduled for fall of 2015 with completion in the fall of 2017.

The total estimated cost for this project is $7,276,226 including $685,101 for preliminary engineering, $150,000 for right of way and $6,441,125 for construction.

Benefits of Project

Improves safety of Route 11 at Cedar Creek by replacing two bridges with a single two-lane structure.  Roadway safety is also improved by realigning the approaches to the new bridge and eliminating a curve which has been the site of several crashes.

During Construction

During construction two-way traffic will be maintained.  Motorists are advised to be alert for traffic pattern changes and flagging operations.
