Project Details

This project is located on Route 867 (North River Road) at the bridge over Pleasant Run in Rockingham County. The project is about a quarter-mile west of the intersection with Route 693 (Fairview Road).

The proposed project will replace the deteriorated Pleasant Run bridge.

The existing bridge is a 13-foot wide single-lane structure and has a posted weight limit of 25 tons. The adjacent roadway has two nine-foot lanes with narrow shoulders and ditches.

The new bridge will be 120 feet long and have two 10-foot lanes. The shoulder width will be two-feet wide.  The alignment is proposed to be shifted to the south in order to  improve the overall roadway alignment and bridge approaches.

The traffic volumes at this location in 2010 were 360 vehicles per day.  The projected traffic volume in 2039 is 500 vehicles per day, of which four percent will be trucks.

The total estimated cost for this project is $1.8 million, including $625,000 for preliminary engineering, $150,000 for right of way and $1.05 million for construction.
