NORTH STAFFORD, Va. — A bridge rehabilitation project has finished on Va. 610 (Garrisonville Road) over Aquia Creek in Stafford County, just west of the intersection with Joshua Road.
Both travel lanes over the bridge are now open to traffic.
The $436,464 project was completed on time and on budget. The project replaced the bridge joints, and repaired the surface of the bridge substructure and superstructure.
The project also added new guardrail, paved the roadway approaches to the bridge, reconstructed the shoulders, and refreshed pavement markings.
One lane of the bridge had been closed for construction since May. Eastbound and westbound traffic was required to alternate crossing the bridge in a single travel lane, controlled by temporary traffic signals.
The project contractor is McClain & Co, Inc.
The existing bridge was built in 1957. The bridge carries an estimated average of 9,100 vehicles a day, according to a 2010 Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) traffic count.
