About the Project

This project will rehabilitate the one-way bridge linking the eastbound Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard) service road to eastbound Wilson Boulevard to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians and extend the overall life of the bridge. The bridge was built in 1958.

The improvements include:

  • New concrete bridge deck and steel beams
  • Reconstructing the bridge's existing sidewalk
  • New sidewalk along the opposite side of the bridge
  • Upgrading the bridge railings
  • Improving curb and gutter on the southwestern approach to the bridge
  • New concrete end walls on the southwestern approach

Within the project limits, Wilson Boulevard averages 7,500 vehicles a day and Route 50 averages 51,000.
