“Help us celebrate Don’s 40 years of volunteer service to OPVRS and Va Beach.What were you doing in November 1981? Don Anderson was joining Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad.”

Start here to DONATE to replace OPVRS Flag Pole.

To that end, as we continue to work on the curb appeal of our building, we have a goal to raise $100 per year served by Don and turn that $4000 into a new, fabulous flagpole to be installed in Don’s honor.

The Virginia Beach Public Works Operations Group has scheduled routine maintenance to the Long Creek Bridge on West Great Neck Road beginning the end of this month. Crews will begin work the week of September 27, 2021.

The structure is currently 60 years old (built circa 1961) and carries two lanes of traffic over Long Creek and provides vehicular access to Bay Island.

This project is considered preventative maintenance and will consist of:

  • Repairs to the deck and beams
  • Repairs/replacement of expansion joints
  • Epoxy deck overlay
  • Cleaning, painting, and waterproofing of piles, caps, and beams
  • Replacement of bridge fender system

The project will require phased closures of sections of the bridge with ingress/egress to Bay Island being maintained at all times.

The work is scheduled to be completed April 2022 – weather permitting.

Additional information and schedules will be published on a regular basis as they are finalized.
