The Centerville Turnpike Bridge will close to traffic on Aug. 24, 2019 for a period of six months to accommodate a major rehabilitation project, primarily to replace the pivot pier mechanism. The bridge is expected to reopen to traffic in February 2020. Additionally, the City of Chesapeake is beginning a feasibility study to explore options for replacing the current bridge with a new, likely fixed span bridge.

The bridge is open and in daily use. If it was closed on 5 December, it was only temporary.
