Route VA-288 Construction - June 2002 - Photos 1-3

Here are 3 photos of Route VA-288 under construction, taken in early June, 2002.


Above, looking south, photo of construction of the 3,642-foot-long VA-288 James River Bridge. All of the bridge columns have been built, all of the pier caps on top of the columns have been built, the north abutments have just been completed, and the final beams were just placed. Deck construction is underway on both bridges. The bridge is of a concrete girder design (steel girders for the over-river spans), with two spans each with two lanes and full right shoulders. North of the river is Goochland County, and south of the river is Powhatan County.
