RT. 641 IN ALBEMARLE CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC AUG. 28
Deck replacement on Preddy Creek bridge will take 5 days; follow posted detour route

CULPEPER — The Route 641 (Burnley Station Road) bridge over Preddy Creek in Albemarle County will be closed to traffic beginning Aug. 28 to allow a bridge crew from the Virginia Department of Transportation to replace the bridge’s timber deck. The closure will begin Monday morning and the bridge will reopen to traffic no later than Friday afternoon.

During the closure, traffic will follow a posted detour route using Route 29 (Seminole Trail) north to Route 33 (Spotswood Trail), then east to a right on Route 644 (Burnley Road), which will lead back to Route 641. All entrances on both sides of the bridge will remain accessible during the closure.
