Army Corps to Close North Landing Bridge for Repairs
November 10, 2009

The North Landing Bridge Closure and Detour Plan. For more information, call Joel Scussel, Operations Branch, Norfolk District, Army Corps of Engineers, at (757) 201-7642 or see the USACE, Northern District web site.

According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Norfolk District, the North Landing Bridge, built in 1951 and located on the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Va. borders, where Mount Pleasant Road turns into North Landing Road, will close for repairs for approximately two months beginning in mid-November.

While the bridge is closed, travelers headed south on North Landing Bridge in Virginia Beach can detour around the bridge by using Indian River Road to Kempsville Road to Centerville Turnpike, back to Mount Pleasant Road. The detour should be followed in reverse for motorists traveling north on Mount Pleasant Road in Chesapeake. This detour will be marked.

Travelers are also reminded that only repairs are being made to the 58-year-old bridge span and bridge house. Once completed, the load limits, vessel clearance, capacity and width of the bridge will remain the same. Throughout repairs, the bridge will remain open to boating traffic; closed to vehicular traffic.
