Lesner Bridge

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Owner: City of Virginia Beach

Design / Construction Engineering and Inspection: FIGG

Designed with the community in a theme of “Reflections of the Bay,” the Lesner Bridge is a new signature bridge for the City of Virginia Beach. The twin eastbound and westbound bridges have 10 spans totaling a length of 1,575’ each. The more open structure achieved by the reduced number of piers in the waterway has opened up views of both the Chesapeake Bay and the Lynnhaven Inlet. The City of Virginia Beach has experienced overwhelmingly positive feedback from the local community and tourists who enjoy

this vital connection over the Lynnhaven Inlet.



Including the 2019 Bridge Award of Excellence from the American Segmental Bridge Institute
