The Mount Jackson Bridge carried US Route 11 over the North Fork Shenandoah River in Mount Jackson, Virginia. It was replaced in 2023.
The Mount Jackson Bridge, spanning the North Fork Shenandoah River in Mount Jackson, Virginia, once carried US Route 11. Built in 1933, this polygonal Warren through truss bridge was built by the Roanoke Iron & Bridge Works from Roanoke, Virginia.
In the summer of 2019, the Virginia Department of Transportation secured approval to replace the Mount Jackson Bridge, which had reached the end of its service life. 1 By the fall of 2021, construction bids were invited, and on January 18, 2022, Fairfield-Echols LLC from Fishersville, Virginia, secured the contract. Construction started soon after, and by July 29, 2023, the new Mount Jackson Bridge was open to the public. 2
The new bridge, which cost $6.7 million, boasts a 245-foot single span and a 40-foot wide roadway. 1
