Project Details

This project is located on Route 758 (Seven Fountain Road) at Passage Creek in Shenandoah County.  The project will replace the single-lane low-water bridge with a new structure.  The new bridge will have two lanes and be built in the same location as the current structure, which was built in 1916. The new bridge will have a 22-foot clear width.  The new bridge will be the same elevation as the current structure.

Preliminary engineering on this project began in early 2010.  Right of way activities began in mid 2013.  Construction is scheduled for summer 2015.

Traffic volume on Route 758 is 170 vehicles per day.  This number is anticipated to increase to  225 vehicles per day by the year 2037.
