Ft. Eustis Bridge Repair
The year 2013 saw the commencement of the Route 105 (Fort Eustis Boulevard) Bridge Replacement over CSX Railroad Project. The replacement bridge will reflect today’s design standards which will include shoulder lanes. The project will require the closing of one-half of the bridge at a time with two-way traffic operating on the half remaining open.
Phase 1 eastbound bridge (heading away from the Fort Eustis gates) was originally begun in March of 2013. Work on Phase 1 was scheduled to be completed in October 2013. However, during demolition of the eastbound bridge, the contractor discovered some underground utilities in conflict with the new bridge piers. The respective utility companies have since relocated their conduit; however, work on the bridge has slowed. Currently, approximately one-half of Phase 1 is complete. It is now expected Phase 1 will be completed in May 2014.
Phase 2 is scheduled to last approximately seven months, from May 2014 until the end of December 2014. Demolition and reconstruction of the westbound bridge (heading toward the Fort Eustis gates) will occur during Phase 2, with traffic restricted in the construction zone to one lane in each direction, traveling across the newly constructed bridge under a reduced speed limit of 35 mph.
Lastly, Phase 3 will consist of median restoration and will take place for approximately three weeks following the completion of Phase 2. This phase of the project is expected to be completed in January 2015.
Ft. Eustis Briefing and Tour
In May 2013, members of the EDA Board and key staff were invited to a luncheon briefing and tour of the facilities at Joint Base Langley-Eustis. The Garrison Commander presented information about completed and future projects which would positively impact not only the installation, but also the surrounding community.Visit website
