The last piece of Navy Federal Credit Union’s pedestrian overpass was installed this morning. The structure will shorten the walking route between the main structure and the new Annex building under construction, and eliminate the crosswalk on Electric Drive. A concrete floor will contain heating elements to prevent snow and ice buildup since the sides will not enclose the walkway completely.
The section is slowly lowered with only a small fraction of an inch to spare on either side.
Welders filled the gaps. The bridge will remain suspended until the welds have been inspected.
Navy Federal is Vienna’s largest employer, and will expand its workforce significantly when the Annex is finished
