What's Being Done?
This project will replace the old, damaged Route 114 westbound bridge over the New River.
The existing westbound Route 114 bridge and approaches over the New River were constructed in 1939. At that time, the two-lane bridge carried both eastbound and westbound Route 114.
In 1990, a new two-lane bridge was built to carry eastbound Route 114 traffic. The old bridge was used to carry westbound traffic and remained in service until June 2002, when it was closed to traffic due to structural damage caused by a vehicle accident.
The reconstructed westbound Route 114 bridge will consist of two 12-foot travel lanes with a 10-foot right shoulder and a six-foot left shoulder for a total width of 40 feet.
What the lastest?
A $14.9-million contract was awarded to Wright Brothers Construction Co. Inc. from Charleston, Tenn. to replace the westbound Route 114 bridge. The contract was awarded in January 2011.
As of mid-April 2011, work began at the bridge. Estimated completion is in November 2014.
What will the traffic and river impacts be?
The boat ramp to the New River located beneath the Route 114 bridge at the Pulaski and Montgomery County line is currently closed due to construction on the new bridge. The boat ramp will reopen on April 1, 2013.
Boaters will need to seek alternate access and egress points. Signs have been posted to advise of the boat ramp closure.
