Project Details

This project replaces the low-water bridge over the North Fork of the Shenandoah River on Route 921 (Lairs Run Road) in Rockingham County.  The existing two-lane bridge built in 1974 has reached the end of its service life. This project is about 0.2-mile long, extending from Route 259 (Brocks Gap Road) to 0.2-mile west of Route 259.

The old bridge has two seven-foot, three-inch wide lanes and is 114-feet long. The new low-water bridge will be located approximately 50-feet north of the old bridge and will have two seven-foot, ten-inch wide lanes and will be 120-feet long.

In 2016 Route 921 had an average daily traffic count of 125 vehicles per day.  By the design year of 2029 the estimated average daily traffic volume is 142 vehicles per day. 

The total estimated cost for this project is $1,905,152, including $375,000 for preliminary engineering, $79,951 for right of way and $1,450,201 for construction.
