Old Mill Road Bridge Replacement

Project Description

The Old Mill Road Bridge Replacement corridor from east of Cooks Mill Road to east of Jean Court is a major arterial two-lane uniform roadway section. The purpose of this project, funded by the VA Department of Transportation (VDOT) State of Good Repair (SGR) program funds, is to replace structurally deficient bridge infrastructure crossing Deep Creek while making needed stormwater drainage improvements.

The project limits are along Old Mill Road from 300 feet east of Cooks Mill Lane to 200 feet east of Jean Court. Roadway improvements include the widening along both sides of Old Mill Road to increase the lane width within the project area to improve safety. In addition to replacing the structurally deficient bridge, the vertical alignment will be raised to mitigate roadway flooding. Drainage ditches will be added to alleviate ponding adjacent to the roadway.

Project Budget

The project budget will cover engineering, land acquisition and construction costs. Project costs are preliminary and subject to change depending on final design features, inflation, utility relocation and easement acquisition costs.

Budget: $1.15 million


The road and drainage improvements will require some property acquisition for right-of-way and easement purposes. Currently, there are seven parcels affected by the project. Prior to the right-of-way and easement acquisition process and construction, all required properties s will be shown on the plans.
