The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun work on the Deep Creek Bridge Replacement Project. The City of Chesapeake will be in a supporting role to the USACE throughout the duration of the project. Each phase of the project will bring with it lane closures and work zones that will contribute to traffic delays in the area. The City will continue to monitor traffic volume and traffic signals in the area and will make adjustments if needed. In addition, the City will report lane closures/lane shifts during construction to the public throughout the duration of the project and will communicate questions and concerns received by residents to the USACE and the USACE’s contractor.
To receive text alerts about project milestones and travel advisories, text DCBridge to 888777. Visit the Deep Creek Bridge webpage for more information.
Public Works continues to do what it can to help keep traffic flowing through the Deep Creek Bridge construction zone as much as is possible. Take a look behind the scenes at some of the technology used to manage traffic in the area.
Also, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has released a new tool that shows current and future phases of the project. While the work in each phase could still change as the project progresses, the Army Corps will update the maps to reflect any changes that occur. Right now the project is in Phase I. Dates for all subsequent phases will be determined as the previous phase nears completion.
