Public Works to Extend Boat Access at Hell’s Point Creek Bridge

Friday, May 03, 2019

Virginia Beach Public Works has announced that beginning May 3, 2019, and continuing until May 27, 2019, the turbidity curtain that is being used at the construction site at Hell’s Point Creek Bridge will be lifted.

The bridge is located over Hell’s Point Creek near the intersection of Sandbridge Road and Oyster Bay Lane, and two miles west of Sandpiper Road in Sandbridge.

Crews have been working since April 16 installing a temporary bridge as a bypass for traffic use and access to Sandbridge while a new replacement bridge is built.  While crews have been working on the temporary bridge, a turbidity curtain has been in use to protect the creek as an erosion and sediment requirement as well as a safety barrier to protect boaters and others who come near the bridge.

The use of the curtain has restricted some boat traffic, so IICON, the contractors for the bridge work, have agreed to lift the curtain from May 3 – May 27.

Beginning Tuesday, May 28, the curtain will be lowered into place once again and will remain in place until the bridge work is completed – sometime in the spring of 2020.  Boaters will be encouraged to make alternate plans for water access before May 28.
