Happy Friday! Enjoy this time lapse from our Glebe Road over Pimmit Run bridge rehab project. The video was taken over the course of the full closure back in Aug. If you look closely, you will see the flood waters and downed trees/wires from Aug. 20! pic.twitter.com/L5NDxjov8W— VDOT Northern VA (@VaDOTNOVA) October 22, 2021
This project rehabilitated the North Glebe Road (Route 120) bridge over Pimmit Run. The bridge was originally built in 1973.
The improvements included:
- Replacing bridge beams, deck and barriers
- Repairing, waterproofing and providing corrosion protection to abutments and piers
- Replacing barriers and railings along bicycle and pedestrian connection to trails
- Upgrading guardrails and drainage
The bridge carries about 13,000 vehicles a day based on 2019 data.
Preliminary Engineering - $1.4 million
Construction - $8.5 million
Total - $9.9 million
The project was financed with federal and state funding, including State of Good Repair funds used for bridges.
The improvements aim to extend the overall life of the bridge and improve safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
