Remember that great day – April 16, 2010, when the Advance Bridge Mills opened? With the support of 500 homeowners sending daily emails to get the attention of VDOT, we managed to get our replacement bridge in a time of meager funds. The importance of the bridge for the safety of local residents and the connectivity of the region helped prioritize the project. (see photos below)
In October 2011, the wooden bridge over Jacob’s Run, 2 miles south of the Advance Mills Bridge, will close for four months. The new bridge will be a concrete box structure and will be 24 feet wide, a large improvement for safety on the corner.
