This project is rehabilitating the northbound and southbound I-95 general purpose lanes bridges over Powells Creek. The bridges, located around mile marker 155 between the Dale City Truck-Only Safety Rest Areas and Cardinal Drive, were originally built in 1963, repaired in 1976 and widened in 1981 and 1996. 

The improvements include:

  • Repairing steel beams and concrete abutments and piers
  • Replacing bearings
  • Closing deck joints
  • Repainting the bridges
  • Resurfacing the northbound bridge deck

The bridges average a combined 148,000 vehicles a day.

Estimated Costs
Preliminary Engineering - $600,000

The project is financed with state funding.


The project will improve safety and extend the overall life of the bridges.
