Construction on Hunter Mill Road Bridge to Begin in 2021

Construction to replace the one-lane Hunter Mill Road bridge over Colvin Run is expected to begin in the spring of 2021.

The bridge, which will have two lanes and four-foot-wide shoulders, was built in 1974. Traffic is projected to increase from 7,900 to 11,000 vehicles per day by 2043.

According to preliminary estimates, the project is expected to cost $3 million and should be completed by the summer of 2022.

State officials held a public meeting about the project on April 16. A public hearing about the design of the project is planned for this fall.

Comments on the project will be accepted by the county through June 25 via email ([email protected]).
