Atkinson Boulevard Opening

City of Newport News, VA

This $50 million joint venture between Bryant Contracting, Inc. and Basic Construction Company, LLC, created a new 4-lane road connecting Warwick Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue.

Basic Construction Company, LLC performed all of the road work to include storm drain, waterlines, box culvert, grading, and asphalt paving and Bryant Contracting, Inc. performed the bridge work.  This project consisted of a 1,742 foot long bridge crossing active CSX railroad tracks, wetlands, and Interstate 64. It is the longest continuous-span bridge with concrete girders in Virginia.

Additionally, elaborate controlled fill and surcharges were built on each end of the bridge to account for expected settlement. This project started in September of 2017 and finished ahead of schedule in December 2020.
