Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project is replacing the existing two-lane interstate overpass on Route 17 with a four-lane bridge. The existing interstate overpass is structurally deficient, and is in need of replacement.

Route 17 will be widened to four travel lanes to just east of the Hospital Boulevard/Germanna Point Drive intersection. 

A shared-use path for pedestrians will be built along the southern side of Route 17 and sidewalk will be built along the northern side of Route 17. Pedestrian crossing equipment and crosswalks will be added at crossing locations.
