W. F. Magann Corporation, on behalf of the City of Chesapeake, will begin the repair of the Centerville Turnpike Bridge located on the Atlantic Coast Intracoastal Waterway – Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal (mile marker 15.2, 36° 43.417’N, 076° 11.183’W. Work is expected to be completed on September 1, 2021. Work may be conducted 7 days a week from 5 a.m. to 12 a.m. during the scheduled rehabilitation, a crane barge, material barge, tugboat, work boats and divers will be near the bridge. During certain phases of the rehabilitation, the tugs, barges, work vessels, and divers will reduce the horizontal clearance in the navigation span. Vessels that require the tugs, barges, and work vessels to clear the navigation span should notify the project supervisor no less than one hour prior to navigation through the bridge. During dive operations within the navigational span, navigation will be on demand and vessels should notify the project foreman no less than one hour prior to navigation through the bridge.

Work vessels and supervisor can be reached on VHF-FM channel 13 or (757) 353-7480. In the event of an emergency, please contact Nick Scribner (757) 342-9510. Mariners are reminded to maintain a safe distance from the working vessels and barges and are asked to use extreme caution while navigating through the area.
