Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge carries the Pocahontas Parkway, signed as Virginia State Highway 895, across the James River between the independent city of Richmond and Henrico County. Crossing the southernmost extremity of Richmond, it provides a connection between Henrico and the southern end of Chippenham Parkway near U.S. Route 1 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

The bridge passes over the James River at about 145 ft. high. The bridge also passes over I-95, which runs parallel with the river. The height of the bridge is still well over 100 ft. high when it passes over I-95. The ramps that connect the interchange of I-95, Chippenham Pkwy, and Pocahontas Pkwy, are all very long and high, making for a visually spectacular interchange.

This map can be deleted, as I have created a different one that I'd rather have stand on it's own. Thanks in advance.

I'll leave it. It is OK to have two different submissions - one for BEV, GM or GE and a separate one for SV.
