Hooes Road Bridge Reopens

It's been closed since July.

The Hooes Road Bridge over Accotink Creek is back. The Virginia Department of Transportation re-opened the three-span, 150-foot-long structure, on Dec. 28. 

Repairs on the $1.25 million project began in July, and included:   

  • removal of the timber deck, asphalt surface, steel beams and bearings 
  • removal of abutment tops, piers and approach guardrails.          
  • modification of concrete abutments and piers for new superstructure
  • placement of new bearings, steel beams and constructing new deck and railings
  • repavement of approach pavement and
  • new guardrail installation.

VDOT estimates that 330 vehicles use the bridge on a daily basis. 

Some small repairs remain, and the entire project is estimated to be completed in April by contractor Martins Construction Company.
