The Jordan Bridge offers a convenient, alternative way to cross the Elizabeth River between South Norfolk (Chesapeake) and Portsmouth.

The 5,375-foot-long, 169 foot high bridge features two 12-foot-wide traffic lanes, two 8-foot-wide shoulders and an 8-foot-wide pedestrian sidewalk. The pedestrian sidewalk is separated from traffic by a concrete barrier. The 5K race course will proceed out and back over the 169 foot bridge span making it the most challenging race course in the area treating you to panoramic views of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Portsmouth from the top.
