    VDOT NEWS RELEASE

    RELEASE: IMMEDIATE December 6, 2018 CONTACT: Paula K. Jones 434-856-8176 (office) LYN-18-122 CONTRACT AWARDED for REPLACEMENT OF MAIN STREET BRIDGE on ALTAVISTA/HURT LINE LYNCHBURG —A $16.8 million contract was awarded to English Construction Company, Inc. of Lynchburg, to replace the bridge that carries Main Street (Route 29 Business) traffic over the Staunton River and Norfolk Southern Railroad between the towns of Altavista, Campbell County and Hurt, Pittsylvania County. The existing structure was built in 1929 and served these communities with two-way traffic and a walking path for many years. However, the path was closed several years ago because of the condition of the structure. The new two-lane structure will be built on the same site and will include bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. The existing bridge will be closed during construction and traffic will be detoured around the site. Construction will be complete by May 2021.
