The Piedmont Drive/Robertson Bridge replacement project is a $17 million VDOT project in Danville, Va. The existing Robertson Bridge over the Dan River is being replaced by a new 940-foot long, 84-foot wide bridge, which will carry five lanes of traffic and a multi-use trail. It is being built in two phases. The bridge consists of eight spans supported by prestressed concrete girders, each weighing approximately 65 tons. Eight pier footings were built in the Dan River. The project also included a 715-foot cantilevered retaining wall that reaches 26 feet tall along Memorial Drive. An extensive tied back shoring system was used to support Memorial Drive during the wall construction. There were also extensive utility upgrades and roadway improvements on this project.

The project started in May of 2010 and was completed in the fall of 2012.
