Centerville Turnpike Bridge Repairs
The Centerville Turnpike Bridge is scheduled to reopen to vehicle traffic May 3 at 7 a.m. The bridge had been closed for repairs following a barge strike incident on Nov. 14, 2020. There will be one additional single overnight closure to vehicle traffic to be scheduled later in May to allow additional maintenance tasks to be completed when tidal levels subside in the Albemarle & Chesapeake Canal.
Centerville Bridge Replacement Feasibility Study
The City of Chesapeake recently completed a feasibility study to evaluate alternatives that may replace the current Centerville Turnpike Bridge and widen the roadway from two lanes to four lanes, in order to improve traffic and marine operations, safety, and the resiliency of the roadway. The formal comment period has expired, but the City will continue to accept comments regarding the proposed alternatives. A description of each proposal, including map graphics, along with a digital comment form is available on the virtual meeting website at https://bit.ly/centervillestudy.
