Ft. Eustis Boulevard CSX Bridge Replacement Project

Ft. Eustis Boulevard CSX Bridge Replacement Project

Date: 24 Jan 2015
Category: Upper Warwick

Built in the 1960s along with the adjacent Reservoir Bridge, this bridge over the CSX Corridor is a crucial component of the portion of Ft. Eustis Boulevard that provides eastwest connectivity into and out of the Upper Warwick Corridor. This completely new bridge, with immediate on-ramp access to I-64, will provide a wider, safer passage for vehicles than the former one. The $6.3 million project is a City-administered, VDOT program that replaces a structure which stood well beyond its useful life. The majority of funding has been committed through City sources, followed closely by State Revenue Sharing garnered by the Department of Engineering. Completion is expected in May 2015, and EDA staff has provided assistance communicating with Oakland Industrial Park, Ft. Eustis officials and other Upper Warwick businesses about the project as it has progressed. The Reservoir Bridge, which is longer, is scheduled for replacement in the near future, with construction currently projected to be completed in 2019 after a two-year construction period.
