Contract awarded for new Altavista Main Street Bridge

The Commonwealth Transportation Board has approved a contract to construct a new bridge to link Altavista and Hurt. It will replace the present Main Street bridge that takes US 29 Business over the Staunton River. The current span was built in 1929, and VDOT says its deteriorating condition led to lowered weight limits in January of this year. English Construction of Lynchburg was awarded the contract for about $17 million.
