Deep Creek Bridge Replacement Meeting Set
December 11, 2009

December 14th public meeting set to discuss Deep Creek Bridge project.

According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, its contractor URS and the City of Chesapeake will hold a public meeting to discuss the Deep Creek Bridge project at 6 p.m. Dec. 14th in the Major Hillard Library in Chesapeake, Va.

The meeting provides an opportunity for area residents to view design drawings and road alignments of the proposed bridge, which makes the bridge larger and intersections safer for residents.

In October 1996, an initial appraisal concluded the current bridge is functionally obsolete because of increasing traffic volumes, too narrow of a roadway and poor alignment with the connecting roads. The bridge replacement project is currently in the design phase, which ends in early 2010. No construction activity will occur until Congress funds the project.

The Deep Creek Bridge is a federally owned and operated facility located where U.S. Route 17 crosses the Dismal Swamp Canal. Once completed, the City of Chesapeake will own and operate the new Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Deep Creek Bridge.
