Project Purpose

The primary purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the substandard Route 230 (Wolftown-Hood Road) bridge over the Conway River, located at the Greene-Madison county line. The existing concrete bridge was built in 1939 and has a sufficiency rating of 47.6 on a scale of 0 (poor) to 100 (very good).

 

What Is Proposed?

VDOT proposes replacing the superstructure of the Conway River bridge, including its deck and riding surface, as well as its piers. The existing abutments will remain in place but will be extended to support the wider bridge deck.

During the 15-month construction period, VDOT will maintain one 11-foot lane over the bridge. Traffic will be temporarily controlled with signals on both ends of the project. Large vehicles, including tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles, will be detoured around the project using Routes 29 and 33.

The Conway River bridge carries 2,970 vehicles per day, according to a 2012 count.
