Gleedsville Road Bridge Re-Opening

Gleedsville Road, which has been closed to thru traffic since early June while the Virginia Department of Transportation replaced the bridge over Sycolin Creek, will re-open on or before Sunday, Aug. 26. Crews will continue to complete minor items on the project through September.

Crews replaced the 77-year old bridge in a little over two months to re-open the road in time for the new school year. The new bridge includes two 11-foot lanes and two four-foot paved shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge and approaches were raised about two feet to improve hydraulic performance at the stream crossing.

The total project cost was about $3.5 million. Fort Myer Construction Corporation was the contractor for the project. Visit VDOT’s project page for more information.
