(Updated at 10:15 a.m.) The N. Glebe Road bridge over Pimmit Run has been serving drivers, cyclists and pedestrians since 1973 but is due for some major maintenance.
At a public meeting tonight (Tuesday) at Williamsburg Middle School (3600 N. Harrison Street), the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is scheduled to unveil new plans for the bridge. The improvements are aimed at improving safety and extending the overall life of the bridge.
According to a press release, improvements will include:
- Repairing and resurfacing the bridge deck
- Repairing, waterproofing and providing corrosion protection to abutments and piers
- Repairing, cleaning and painting beams
- Replacing railings along bicycle and pedestrian connection to trails
- Upgrading guardrails and drainage
The bridge feeds into nearby Chain Bridge and sees an average of 12,000 vehicles each day.
The press release says the event will be an open house running from 6:30-8:30 p.m., with displays and information about the project’s design. A presentation will be made at 7 p.m.
The project is estimated to cost $7.5 million and will be financed by the State of Good Repair fund, a state and federal program used to address repairs on bridges considered structurally deficient on the National Bridge Inventory, according to the press release.
Construction is expected to start in fall 2020.
