Norfolk, Va. – VDOT has announced that the scheduled I-264 Berkley Bridge lift at 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan.7, 2013, may be delayed to accommodate the lift span float-in of the new Gilmerton Bridge. 

The five-million-pound Gilmerton lift span, which will be transported via a barge through the Elizabeth River to the Gilmerton Bridge site, is estimated to approach the Berkley Bridge during the regularly scheduled 9 a.m. lift. However, due to the complicated nature of the float-in operation, the lift span’s arrival to the Berkley Bridge may be later than anticipated.
