A bridge will be built this September to connect the port province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau with the industrial hub of Dong Nai.

Expected to cost VND4.87 trillion ($208 million) of the state budget, Phuoc An Bridge will stretch more than 3.7 kilometers, including leading roads, to cross the Thi Vai River, and span 26 meters with six lanes.

The river is the natural border between the two provinces, which both border Ho Chi Minh City. More than 13 hectares in both provinces will be cleared to serve the project.

Nguyen Van Trinh, director of Traffic Project Management Board at Cai Mep – Thi Vai Port in Ba Ria – Vung Tau, said Wednesday that the contractor for the project has been picked and work will start in September to build the bridge from the site of Ba Ria – Vung Tau first.

When it opens to traffic, the bridge will connect the deep-water port of Cai Mep – Thi Vai in Ba Ria – Vung Tau with Ben Luc – Long Thanh Expressway, which is under construction to run between Dong Nai and Long An Province in the Mekong Delta, passing through HCMC as the longest expressway in southern Vietnam.
