Lesner Bridge Replacement

RS&H provided CEI services on the Lesner Bridge Replacement for the City of Virginia Beach. Construction included twin 1,575-foot pre-cast, post-tensioned, segmental bridges providing a 45-foot clearance over the Lynnhaven Inlet via Shore Drive. Each structure consists of ten spans; nine at 150 feet and a channel span of 225 feet. The bridges each carry two 12-foot travel lanes and include a 10-foot multiuse path separated by a barrier wall. The bridges were constructed using a combination of span-by-span and balanced cantilever erection methods.
