Public Works Update on Boat Access at Hell’s Point Creek Bridge

Friday, May 24, 2019

Virginia Beach Public Works has announced that boat access at the Hell’s Point Creek Bridge has been extended by one week. 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.

The turbidity curtain as currently configured at the construction site was previously scheduled to drop on Monday, May 28th.  Because of delays, critical work will not begin until the week of June 3rd, so the curtain will remain lifted until then.   On the morning of Monday, June 3rd, the curtain will be lowered into place and remain lowered while construction activities occur within the creek.

Crews have been working since April 16th 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 alert boaters and others who come near the construction site.

Further updates to the schedule for boat access will provided on a regular basis as the project moves forward.
