This project will replace the Route 211 westbound bridge over the South Fork of the Shenandoah River in Page County. The bridge was built in 1947.
This 0.64-mile long project also improves the approaches on Route 211 to the new bridge. The project extends on Route 211 from 0.416-mile west of Route 646 to 0.226-mile east of Route 646.
The new bridge and its approaches will have two 12-foot wide travel lanes and 10-foot wide shoulders. The proposed project will shorten the new bridge by approximately 200 feet to match the embankment length of the existing Route 211 eastbound lane bridge. The new bridge will be 625-feet long and will be built in the same location as the old bridge
The access road located under the current bridge near the west abutment is proposed to be relocated and have a direct connection with the eastbound lanes of Route 211.
The average daily traffic volume at this location was 7,911 vehicles per day in 2012. In the year 2042 traffic is projected to be 10,351 vehicles per day.
The total estimated cost for this project is $13.65 million, including $782,306 for preliminary engineering, $179,767 for right of way and $12.69 million for construction.

Benefits of Project
This project improves safety on Route 211 by replacing a deteriorating bridge structure with a new bridge that is able to support modern traffic both in volume and vehicle weights.
During construction the eastbound Route 211 bridge will be utilized for both westbound and eastbound traffic. Motorists should be alert for lane closures and flagging operations.
The boat launch under the bridge will also be closed during construction.
