TRANSPORTATION BOARD AWARDS CONTRACT FOR I-195 BRIDGE REHABILITATION PROJECT IN THE CITY OF RICHMOND
Project to extend the life cycle of the bridge will begin summer 2019
SOUTH CHESTERFIELD — At its June meeting, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) awarded a contract worth approximately $9.1 million to Corman Kokosing Construction Company of Annapolis Junction, Maryland to rehabilitate the I-195 south bridge over Powhite Parkway (Route 76) and CSX rail in the City of Richmond.
The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the existing bridge deck and complete structural steel repairs on the bridge, extending its life cycle. The existing bridge was constructed in 1975.
The project is expected to begin summer 2019, with a detour in place for travelers accessing I-195 south from Cary Street. Construction will be completed in stages to consistently allow two lanes of moving traffic on I-195 south to minimize disruption to motorists. Weather permitting, work is expected to be complete winter 2021.
