Public hearing scheduled for Cedar Creek bridge project

Daily Staff Report

The Virginia Department of Transportation plans to hold a public hearing next month concerning the replacement of the Cedar Creek bridge on U.S. 11.

The meeting is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m., Feb. 19, at the Strasburg Town Office.

Residents are invited to attend during meeting hours and discuss the project on a one-on-one basis with VDOT officials and designers. A court reporter will record oral comments at the hearing.

VDOT proposes building a new two-lane bridge over Cedar Creek on Old Valley Pike in Shenandoah County and removing both northbound and southbound existing bridges. Construction of the $7.2 million project is tentatively scheduled to begin in the fall of 2015 and complete in the fall of 2017.

According to VDOT, the project would improve the safety of U.S. 11 by replacing the two bridges with a single two-lane structure. The proposed bridge would have enough right of way for future widening to four lanes if necessary.

The project would also realign the approaches to the bridge, including eliminating a curve on the southbound approach that has been the site of several crashes.

Two-way traffic would be maintained during construction, according to VDOT.

Written comments can be submitted at the meeting or within 10 days after the meeting to Project Manager Ronald Tabor at 811 Commerce Road, Staunton.

In case of inclement weather, the meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Feb. 20, at the same location.
