North Landing Bridge to Close for Repairs
October 30, 2009

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

Using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 or ARRA funding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, awarded a $193,000 contract to Luna Development, a small business contractor in Norfolk, and a $1.6 million contract to U.S. Facilities, a minority-owned contractor from Philadelphia, Pa.

Luna Development is performing bridge house repairs, which includes additional security at the bridge house and upgrading the energy-efficiency of the bridge house with improved windows, doors, roofing, air conditioning and heat.

U.S. Facilities will perform the second work phase – when the bridge closes to vehicular traffic. Repairs include the removal and replacement of the existing bridge surface, steel grid replacement and concrete fill, repairs to the underwater support pilings and concrete abutments, and replacement of traffic control lights and poles and traffic control gates.
