Figg Bridge Builders on target to open new Jordon Bridge - Chesapeake
Figg Bridge Builders say they are on target to open the new South Norfolk Jordon Bridge in Chesapeake, Virginia. The new bridge will cross the James River.
The new 5,375’ long South Norfolk Jordan Bridge will be a two-lane, fixed span, high-rise toll bridge over the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River. On the west side of the river, the bridge will tie into existing Elm Avenue and provide a roadway tie-in to Burton’s Point Road. On the east side, it will tie into the existing Poindexter Street just west of I-464 and provide connection roads to Truxton Street and I-464. The new bridge will feature two 12’ wide traffic lanes, two 8’ wide shoulders, and an 8’ wide pedestrian sidewalk separated by a concrete barrier and meeting the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. A fully electronic tolling system will use E-Z Pass to maximize convenience for users. According to Figg Bridge Builders the bridge is scheduled to open to traffic in July of 2012.
