The primary purpose of this project is to replace two bridges and approaches on US 29/460 over Norfolk-Southern Railroad in the City of Lynchburg, east of the Business 501, Campbell Avenue, interchange. 

In 2014, the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) volume was 33,102 vehicles with 8.78% trucks. There is a projected Design Year ADT of 46,509 vehicles in 2041. 

The existing 29 North/460 East structure was built in 1953, is narrow and in "fair" condition. The existing 29 South/460 West structure was built in 1936 and is in "poor" condition and classified as structurally deficient. Both structures are on the National Highway System and carry a significant amount of traffic. 

The 29 South/460 West structure (UPC T18108) will remain on the same alignment; however, the centerline of 29 North/460 East (UPC 104599) will shift slightly to the east. 

May 21, 2020 Update: 

W. C. English, Inc. of Lynchburg was awarded a $16.9 million contract for the replacement of these structures in the City of Lynchburg. 



This project will replace two bridges along a corridor which carries significant traffic. Each structure is classified as structurally deficient which means the structure is safe but in need of improvement/replacement.
