BRIDGE WORK TO BEGIN SEPT. 10 ON ROUTE 211/522
Two-way traffic will use eastbound bridge during construction
CULPEPER — A new traffic pattern will take effect next week as construction begins on the westbound Route 211/522 (Lee Highway) bridge over the North Fork Thornton River in Rappahannock County.
VDOT contract crews will install a median crossover near the bridge early next week. On Wednesday, Sept. 12, weather permitting, the westbound Route 211/522 bridge will close to traffic. Westbound traffic will use the eastbound left lane during construction. Eastbound traffic will proceed through the work zone in the right lane. Drivers are advised to use caution approaching the work zone and obey all traffic controls.
Under a $1,641,123 construction contract, Virginia Department of Transportation contractor Fairfield-Echols, LLC of Fishersville will replace the westbound bridge. Work will be completed in July 2019.
