I-295 Varina-Enon Bridge features the world's first use of precast concrete delta frames for construction of its 630' cable-stayed main span. This cost effective and innovative structure carries six lanes of traffic over the James River. Completed in July 1990, this $34.4 million bridge saved the Virginia Department of Transportation approximately $10 million over their project estimate. All seven bidders chose the precast concrete segmental design over the competing steel design.
This unique cable-stayed bridge withstood a direct tornado strike on August 6, 1993, across the center of its main span without any damage although the tornado overturned trucks traveling on the bridge. It has earned Virginia Department of Transportation seven design awards.
