Virginia’s Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $68-million contract to Atlanta-based Archer Western Contractors for restoration of 11 bridges and overpasses along the Interstate-95 corridor in Richmond.

Archer Western will replace bridges along a 7-mi stretch of I-95 between Lombardy Street in the city of Richmond and Upham Brook in Henrico County.

Construction is slated to begin in the fall and complete by 2014.

The four-year project will be completed in multiple phases. The first two years of the project will involve repair and restoration activities under each bridge.

Beginning in 2012, contractors will replace each bridge span with a new, prefabricated section.
