St. Andrews Street Bridge Ribbon-Cutting & Reopening


Construction of the new St. Andrews Street Bridge located in Ward 4 of Petersburg is complete. A ribbon-cutting and reopening is scheduled for Thursday, March 17 at 11am at the bridge. The public is invited as City Council members and the City team reopen the bridge that has been closed for nearly 15 years. 

“When I joined Council, I made it a priority to get this bridge opened because I realized how important it was to citizens and public safety,” said Charles Cuthbert, Ward 4 Councilor. “The new construction would not have happened without the support of the Mayor, all council members and a dedicated Public Works team who was led by Deputy City Manager Tangela Innis.”


The St. Andrews Street Bridge was built in 1935 and replaced in 1968. The bridge runs under I-95, connecting the Poplar Lawn community to the Blandford neighborhood. In 2007 the bridge, that crosses Lieutenant Run Stream, was closed because it was found to be structurally deficient. It was determined that a full bridge replacement was required. 


Construction began at the end of 2020. The new bridge is about four and a half feet wider to meet Virginia Department of Transportation standards. The cost of the new bridge is approximately $1.9 million dollars.
