Route VA-288 Construction - September 2002 - Photos 6-9

Here are 4 photos of Route VA-288 under construction, taken in early September, 2002.


Above, widening of US-250 Broad Street Road, west of VA-288 interchange under construction, in Goochland County. The VA-288 overpasses under construction can be seen in the distance. The 2-lane US-250 is being widened to 6 lanes divided in the interchange area.


Above, looking north, photo of construction of the parallel northbound span of the VA-288 Tuckahoe Creek Bridge in Goochland County about 1/2 mile south of US-250 Broad Street Road. The concrete deck has been poured on the northbound span. Construction on the western portion of VA-288 began in 1995 in Goochland County with a 3.9-mile-long project between West Creek Parkway and US-250 Broad Street Road, and the project was completed in 1997 as a 2-lane freeway on a 4-lane right-of-way; that is the completed highway that is open to traffic. The earthen fills in the distance rise upward to the overpasses that are under construction over US-250 Broad Street Road. The interchange between VA-288 and US-250 will be a half cloverleaf interchange to the south, with full interchange movements provided between the two highways. No ramps were built to the north of US-250, because of the closeness to Interstate I-64; the I-64 interchange with VA-288 is under construction about 1/2 mile north of the US-250 interchange. A 135mm (2.7x) telephoto lens accentuates the horizontal curvature of the highway.


Above, looking south, photo of construction of the parallel northbound span of the VA-288 Tuckahoe Creek Bridge in Goochland County about 1/2 mile south of US-250 Broad Street Road. The concrete deck has been poured on the northbound span. This is the same site as the previous photo, but looking from the opposite direction. A 135mm (2.7x) telephoto lens accentuates the horizontal curvature of the highway.



Above, looking south, photo of construction of the parallel VA-288 bridges over Bernards Creek. This is about 1/2 mile south of where VA-711 Huguenot Springs Trail crosses VA-288 in Powhatan County.
