Notes
Survey number HAER VA-48-AA
Building/structure dates: 1972 initial construction
Significance: Parkway Drive Bridge was constructed to provide a separated grade crossing at the intersection of Route 163 and the Colonial Parkway. Prior to construction of the underpass, the grade crossing was considered one of the more dangerous intersections because of limited sight distance. Development northwest of Williamsburg accounted for increased traffic which aggravated the problem. The bridge is typical for this section of the parkway and is patterned after the 1966 Miller's Crossing Bridge.
