Photos #4 through #6 show construction on the eastbound span of the main span of the Route 895 James River Bridge, which is being built by the cast-in-place balanced cantilever method. The vantage point is from the ramp from VA-150 Chippenham Parkway to I-95 northbound, looking eastward toward construction of main span.
