In April 2024, a major milestone was reached as traffic shifted to the new southbound roadway alignment and bridge over Route 112. Previously in December 2023, the construction phase reached a similar milestone with the completion and traffic shift to the new northbound roadway alignment and bridge over Route 112. This bridge and interchange were the most challenging of the project due to elevation changes, geology of the area, and new foundations that were installed adjacent to the existing bridge.

“This is a momentous opportunity for our team to aid the Roanoke and Salem communities with safer and more efficient transportation infrastructure,” says Dewberry Senior Associate and Senior Project Manager Matt Thomas, PE. “We are proud of the hard work the design and construction teams have completed to date.”
