Project Purpose

The purpose of this project is to replace the aged Route 677 (Broomley Road) bridge over the Buckingham-Branch Railroad tracks in Ivy. The existing bridge is deteriorated and has been posted with a 10-ton weight limit.


 

What Is Proposed?

The Route 677 bridge over the Buckingham-Branch Railroad will be replaced with a single-span steel truss bridge. The new bridge will meet current design standards and will be capable of carrying all legal loads.

VDOT proposes closing Route 677 to through traffic during construction, which is anticipated to last seven months. The detour route will be Route 677 (Old Ballard Road) to Route 676/678 (Owensville Road) to Route 250 (Ivy Road).

A 2011 count shows that 740 vehicles use Route 677 daily.
