Recently Completed: Districtwide Bridge Beam End Repair

Cost and schedule ►

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has completed a districtwide bridge repair project that improved the condition of six bridges, removing their structurally deficient status. 

Scheduling these repairs to bridge beam ends extended the life of each structure and ensured they remain able to carry vehicle traffic of all legal weights. 

The $2.1 million project was funded with State of Good Repair funds, which are targeted at improving or replacing structurally deficient bridges across Virginia. 

Structurally deficient does not mean a bridge is unsafe for travel, but it is an indicator that a bridge needs maintenance or repair work to improve its condition. 

Crews began work in April 2018 and completed work in February 2020.
