This project is located on Route 11 (Lee Highway) in Rockingham County.  The bridge over Interstate 81 at exit 257 was replaced with a new structure.  The old bridge was built in 1965 and had reached the end of its service life. 

The new bridge was constructed approximately 60 feet to the south of the existing bridge. The project included realigning the bridge approaches. The new structure has two lanes with left-turn lanes at about the same elevation as the previous crossing.

Additionally, the intersection of the northbound I-81 exit and entrance ramps with Route 11 have been signalized to improve the traffic operations of the interchange.

In 2011 Route 11 had an average daily traffic count of 3,600 vehicles per day.  By the design year of 2039 the estimated average daily traffic volume is 9,170 vehicles per day.


This project improves safety on Route 11 by replacing a deteriorating bridge structure with a new bridge that is able to support modern traffic both in volume and vehicle weights.
