WATERLOO BRIDGE RESTORATION COMPLETED TWO MONTHS EARLY
Restored 143-year-old bridge is open to traffic with 12-ton weight restriction

CULPEPER — The project to restore the 143-year-old Waterloo bridge over the Rappahannock River at the Culpeper-Fauquier county line was completed Feb. 23, more than two months ahead of schedule.

Route 613 (Waterloo Road) is open to through traffic. The bridge has a posted weight restriction of 12 tons.

Under a $3.65 million construction contract, Corman Kokosing Construction Company of Annapolis Junction, Md. dismantled, removed, repaired and reinstalled the single-lane truss bridge. The project was completed on-budget.

The bridge, a wrought-iron truss structure, was built in 1878. Due to significant deterioration, VDOT closed the bridge to traffic in January 2014.
