Project Description

This project involves replacing the Route 220 bridge over Back Creek in Roanoke County.  Construction on the replacement bridge will begin in fall 2017 and be completed in spring 2020.

The bridge is located about 0.2 miles south of Route 220’s intersection with Route 657 (Crowell Gap Road) and approximately six miles north of Boones Mill.

The old four-lane bridge was built in 1947 and has minimal shoulder width.  The new bridge will be wider with a six-foot inside shoulder and a 10-foot outside shoulder.  The project also includes earthwork to improve the sight distance at Route 220’s intersection with Crowell Gap Road. 

During construction, two narrowed traffic lanes are expected to remain open on Route 220 in each direction with additional lane closures possible during nighttime hours.

Traffic Impacts

Work began in October 2017.

Lane closures and width restrictions are possible. Signs will alert drivers to work zone activities.
