Notes
Survey number HAER VA-48-P
Building/structure dates: 1955 initial construction
Significance: Construction of the Isthmus Bridge, also known as the bridge between Glasshouse Point and Jamestown Island, marked the final link between the Colonial Parkway and the island along a reconstructed isthmus. The bridge, which is a similar design to both Mill and College creek bridges, is built on an area exposed to extensive erosion from the James River and requires continued maintenance of the shore protection around its abutments. Plans are being prepared to rebuild and enlarge the current riprap wall.
