This project replaced the Route 850 (West Midland Trail) bridge over Kerrs Creek in Rockbridge County, between Route 629 and Route 633.
The old bridge that carried Route 850 over Kerrs Creek was constructed in 1927 with a reinforced concrete deck. This project included a new 35-foot-wide concrete-frame bridge and minor modifications to the roadway approaches.
Route 850 is classified as a rural major collector. The existing bridge has an average traffic count of 239 vehicles per day as of 2013, and a projected count of 372 vehicles per day for the design year of 2037.
The estimate for the project is $1,106,760 with $201,491 for preliminary engineering, $45,000 for right-of-way and utilities, and $860,269 for construction.
This project replaces an existing substandard, structurally deficient bridge on a state-maintained route that serves county residents. If not replaced the existing bridge will continue to deteriorate and would eventually have to be closed to vehicular traffic.
