NASH ROAD (ROUTE 636) BRIDGE REPLACEMENT NOW COMPLETE IN CHESTERFIELD
Project finishes ahead of schedule

Newly widened structure will accommodate future traffic volumes

SOUTH CHESTERFIELD – On Tuesday, August 13, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) completed the $2.6 million bridge replacement project on Nash Road (Route 636) over Rita Branch Creek in Chesterfield. Crews were able to reopen the road ahead of schedule and on budget to approximately 2,200 vehicles per day. Work is now complete and all travel lanes are open.

Construction began in early April 2019 to replace the aging structure, originally built in 1951. The bridge was replaced with a wider structure able to accommodate future traffic volumes. The 8 ton weight restriction on the bridge has also been lifted.
