Rivermont Avenue Bridge
Rivermont Avenue Bridge History
This bridge was constructed in 1974 with deck repairs on the South bound lanes performed in 1998. It then had the rocker bearings adjusted in 2001. The bridge consists of two westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes, 7 steel girders per span, 7 spans, and has a total length of approximately 885 feet. Bridge problems include delamination of the deck, cracks in the sidewalks, parapet walls and substructure components, bearings, expansion joints, a deteriorating drainage system and deteriorating paint on the structural steel.
City staff retained a consultant to perform non-destructive testing of the bridge deck and the sub-structure. A traffic study was performed to determine the impact of making lane changes to the bridge. Staff also conducted meetings with Lynchburg Depressive Disorder Association (LDDA) and Friends of Rivermont to receive their concerns and recommendations.
The final design on this major project as was completed in August 2009. Construction began in early 2010, with completion by July 2012. The total cost of this project is estimated to be approximately $4,000,000.00.
