Officials have been restoring and reinstalling the 137-year-old structure that’s near the Norfolk Southern Railroad.
They are seeking to improve safety and extend the its lifespan through the $8 million project, according to a release from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).
The one-lane bridge is used by motorists who are traveling north. A bridge that was built nearby in December 2016 is serving those driving south.
Norfolk Southern Railroad bought the one-lane bridge, which was constructed for the Keystone Bridge Company, in the early 1900s. It was moved to Aden Road after the purchase.
VDOT became the owner five years ago.
In January 2016, the structure was removed from the railroad crossing and was reinstalled in November.
Last parts of the project will be finished this spring. They aren’t expected to a significant impact on traffic.
