Recently Completed: Route 635 (Greenwood Road), Orange County

Cost and schedule ►

Construction is complete on a project to replace the Route 635 (Greenwood Road) bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad in Orange County. The project was finished on time (June 18) and on budget.  

Under a $3,031,177 construction contract, Virginia Department of Transportation contractor Abernathy Construction Corporation of Glen Allen replaced the 78-year-old bridge on a new alignment just slightly to the east.

The new bridge is 16-feet wide on a 120-foot steel plate girder, eliminating the need for piers. 

The Route 635 bridge carries approximately 290 vehicles per day. 


This project will rehabilitate an existing substandard bridge on a state-maintained roadway that serves residential areas, local businesses and industries.

If not rehabilitated, the existing bridge will continue to deteriorate and will eventually have to be closed to vehicles.
