Work continues on the new Greenwich Road flyover, following the bridge's phased opening in early March.
The bridge initially opened to two lanes of traffic, with one lane of traffic in each direction between Greenwich Road and Cleveland Street.
With barricades in place to safely separate traffic from VDOT contractor crews, work continues on the flyover and the road immediately approaching either side of the structure, including curb, gutter and sidewalk. Upcoming work will include bridge painting and installation of decorative bridge panels.
The phased opening of the flyover allowed the project contractor to move forward with its work to improve the five-legged Witchduck intersection, while simultaneously opening up new access for motorists from Cleveland Street to Greenwich Road.
Ultimately, the flyover will accommodate four lanes of traffic, with two lanes of traffic in each direction. This work is expected to be completed in fall 2021, aligning with the substantial completion date of the interchange project.
