Public Works Announces Maintenance Work to Begin on Long Creek Bridge 

The Virginia Beach Public Works Operations Group has scheduled routine maintenance to the Long Creek Bridge on West Great Neck Road beginning the end of this month.  Crews will begin work the week of September 27, 2021

The structure is currently 60 years old (built circa 1961) and carries two lanes of traffic over Long Creek and provides vehicular access to Bay Island.

This project is considered preventative maintenance and will consist of: 

  • Repairs to the deck and beams
  • Repairs/replacement of expansion joints
  • Epoxy deck overlay
  • Cleaning, painting, and waterproofing of piles, caps, and beams
  • Replacement of bridge fender system

The project will require phased closures of sections of the bridge with ingress/egress to Bay Island being maintained at all times. 

The work is scheduled to be completed April 2022 – weather permitting. 

Additional information and schedules will be published on a regular basis as they are finalized.   For questions, information, and updates, please e-mail:  jrevans@vbgov.com.
