Hurt & Proffitt provided construction stakeout on the new bridge in Henry County. The new $2.4 million bridge is located in the Fieldale community and connects to Appalachian-Koelher Road. It replaces the original bridge that was built in the 1930’s.
According to VDOT, about 4,500 cars are expected to use it each day. Henry County leaders hope more industrial businesses will settle into Fieldale since the bridge, which is a main thoroughfare, is now strong enough to handle heavy-duty trucks and cargo. The project was completed three months ahead of schedule. Work on the bridge began in April 2009. A truss from the old bridge is on permanent display at the nearby Fieldale ballpark.
