Project Description
Replace Route 105 (Fort Eustis Blvd) Bridge over the Newport News (Lee Hall) Reservoir.The 658-foot long Route 105 Bridge over the Newport News Reservoir is considered structurally deficient based on the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) and is nearing the end of its useful service life.  Replacement and widening of the bridge will provide a bridge cross-section that meets the current American Association of Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and VDOT geometric requirements and provide increased safety measures by widening the shoulders along the bridge.  Route 105 is the main artery to the Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) main entrance gate to I-64.
