Event Organizer Website
Join us for the inaugural South Norfolk Jordan Bridge Bash & River Run. This unique event celebrates the grand opening of the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge. The new bridge will offer a convenient, alternative way to cross the Elizabeth River between South Norfolk (Chesapeake) and Portsmouth. Modern in both engineering and design, it will replace the existing Jordan Bridge that was closed in November 2008.
The new 5,375-foot-long, 169 foot high bridge will feature two 12-foot-wide traffic lanes, two 8-foot-wide shoulders and an 8-foot-wide pedestrian sidewalk. The pedestrian sidewalk will be separated from traffic by a concrete barrier. This inaugural event surely will prove to be the most scenic, unique and challenging event in Hampton Roads.
There will be vendor exhibits, entertainment and kid's fun activities that are free and open to the public all day. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Evening fireworks will also be free and open to the public.
The race will be an out and back course starting on the bridge approach, over the 169' high bridge and finishing under the E-ZPass® toll structure at the foot of the bridge in South Norfolk.
