The bridge on Dundas Road that climbs over the CSX tracks and becomes Beulah Road west of the bridge will be replaced by 2020. New funding for the project was announced last week, justifying the project due to its sufficiency rating of 34, which would rank the bridge condition as poor, and in need of rehabilitation. The bridge also provides a key link between Bensley Elementary School and a nearby high-density residential area, but lacks appropriate pedestrian facilities. This project would allow the bridge to improve structural integrity while also providing much needed pedestrian facilities.
The bridge project will cost $6 million in total with $1 million in funding in 2017 for engineering, $1 million in 2019 for purchase of right-of-way and the remainder of $4 million for construction in 2020.
Spending under these regional programs is determined by locally-elected officials meeting together as a regional transportation body. VDOT has allocated over $160 million across in the Richmond region in road projects over the next five years.
Chesterfield projects include: Route 10 Widening (Bermuda Triangle Road to Meadowville Road); Route 10 Widening (Route 1 to I-95); Route 10 Widening (Whitepine Road to Frith Lane) and Route 360 Widening (Lonas Pkwy to Castle Rock Rd).
These projects span 2017 to 2020.
