According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, repairs to the North Landing Bridge, which was built in 1951, are 85 percent complete.

The bridge, located on the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Va. borders, where Mount Pleasant Road turns into North Landing Road, closed Nov. 16th, 2009. Using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, is overseeing the project.

As of Jan. 6th, installation and welding of a new steel grid on the Virginia Beach span is complete. Also, new traffic gates and control lights are installed and operational.

Work is progressing well; delays have occurred due to heavy rain in November and December, and unseasonably cold temperatures in January. Contractors worked through the holidays to regain schedule.
