Update on Boat Access at Hell’s Point Creek Bridge

Friday, June 21, 2019

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (June 21, 2019) - Virginia Beach Public Works has announced the following weekend dates when the turbidity curtain will be lifted to allow boat access under the bridge.  The restriction on dates is because bridge work will continue throughout the summer:

​OPEN:                                                                   CLOSE: 

  • Friday, June 21, at 5 p.m.                                     Monday, June 24, at 7 a.m.
  • Wednesday, July 3, at 5 p.m.                                 Monday, July 8, at 7 a.m.
  • Friday, July 19, at 5 p.m.                                       Monday, July 22, at 7 a.m.
  • Friday, August 2, at 5 p.m.                                   Monday, August 5, at 7 a.m.
  • Friday, August 16, at 5 p.m.                                 Monday, August 19, at 7 a.m.
  • Friday, August 30, at 5 p.m.                                 Tuesday, September 3, at 7 a.m.


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 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 be provided as the project moves forward.
