Genito Road Bridge Replacement
Project at a Glance
Est Completion Date
Lengths and Limits
Scott Fisher, Area Construction Engineer
The Genito Road bridge over Tomahawk Creek, built in 1939, has advanced corrosion and is in need of replacement. The design will widen the existing 10 foot lanes to 11 feet and provide an additional four feet for bicycle accommodations, as the project is located on a United States Bicycle Route (USBR 1). The bridge will be 34 feet wide. The existing shoulder will be replaced with curb and gutter on the bridge approaches. The design will also shift the roadway slightly to the south to avoid the water line on the north side of the bridge.
To prevent the need for a temporary traffic signal and to accelerate construction, the bridge will be closed for approximately 30 days beginning on Monday, July 18. Drivers will use a two-mile detour during the closure:
• Eastbound Genito Rd. (Rt. 604) – Take Woolridge Rd. (Rt. 668) north to Watermill Pkwy. north to Old Hundred Rd. (Rt. 652) east to Charter Colony Pkwy. (Rt. 754) south back to Genito Rd. (Rt. 604).
• Westbound Genito Rd. (Rt. 604) – Take Charter Colony Pkwy. (Rt. 754) north to Old Hundred Rd. (Rt. 652) west to Watermill Pkwy. south to Woolridge Rd. (Rt. 668) south back to Genito Rd. (Rt. 604).
A design public hearing was held October 16, 2013.
