Project Description

The purpose of this project is to replace and widen the existing bridge. The existing structurally deficient bridge was built in 1936. The current Route 58 Bridge over CSX Railroad and Route 632 is a two-lane, five span concrete structure with a total length of 213 feet. It is supported by three multi-column reinforced pier bents and concrete abutments all supported on piles. The crossing at this location is on a curved alignment. The current vertical clearance over the CSX Railroad tracks is substandard at 21'-0". Also, the horizontal clearance at Pier 3 is less than the required 23' minimum. 

Improvements with this project include roadside ditches and adding water quality swales to treat the storm water run-off.

Proposed Bridge

The replacement structure will carry two 12-foot travel lanes with 8' shoulders. The curb-to-curb width will be 40'-0" and will have an out-to-out width of 43'-4". The vertical profile will be raised to provide the required 23'-0" minimum clearance over the railroad tracks. It is anticipated that abutments will be stem type (Virginia abutment). Approach slabs will be required. The proposed structure will be approximately 200' in length. Retaining walls will be used to eliminate the need to acquire additional right of way resulting from the increased profile.

Traffic Alerts

A detour and road closure will be scheduled for this project. Residents will be notified in advance of construction.

Demolition of the Carrsville Bridge at the intersection of Old Myrtle Road has been scheduled along with intermittent stoppages. View the release here.
