This project will replace the Route 211 westbound bridge over the South Fork of the Shenandoah River in Page County. The original westbound bridge was built in 1947. This 0.6-mile long project will also improve the Route 211 approaches to the new bridge.
The new westbound bridge and its approaches will have two travel lanes 12 feet wide, a left shoulder 6 feet wide, and a right shoulder 10 feet wide. The proposed project will shorten the new bridge by approximately 200 feet to match the embankment length of the existing eastbound bridge. The new bridge will be 625-feet long and will be built in the same location as the current bridge.
The access road under the current bridge near the east abutment has been relocated to provide access to a temporary boat ramp during construction.
The average daily traffic volume at this location was 7,911 vehicles per day in 2012. In the year 2042 traffic is projected to be 10,351 vehicles per day.
The total estimated cost for this project is $16,891,931, including $1,067,854 for preliminary engineering, $323,916 for right of way, and $15,500,161 million for construction.
This project improves safety on Route 211 by replacing a deteriorating bridge structure with a new bridge that is able to support modern traffic both in volume and vehicle weights.
