Project Purpose and Description

The purpose of this project is to replace the structurally deficient bridge on Route 130 over Pedlar River in Amherst County.  

The current bridge has a sufficiency rating of 48.2. 

Under this project, Route 130 will remain on the same horizontal and vertical alignment that currently exists with approaches to be constructed as needed. Additionally, the existing intersection with Route 635 (Buffalo Springs Turnpike) will be demolished and the remaining portion of Route 635 will be realigned to tie into Route 130 west of the Route 130 bridge. 

During construction, the existing bridge will be closed and an onsite detour route in place.
