ROUTE 614 BRIDGE IN LANCASTER COUNTY TO CLOSE FOR CONSTRUCTION
A detour route will be in place starting on Monday, July 9 through mid-August

FREDERICKSBURG — Construction will begin on Monday, July 9 to replace a bridge superstructure over Brown’s Creek on Route 614 (Devil’s Bottom Road) in Lancaster County.

 

The bridge will be closed to all traffic during construction, which is expected to conclude in mid-August.

 

Signs have been posted along a detour route to guide motorists. Barricades will be installed at both ends of the bridge on July 9 to prevent traffic from crossing during construction work.

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recommends motorists use Route 3 (Historyland Highway) and Route 604 (Merry Point Road) as detour routes during construction.

 

The bridge over Brown’s Creek was built in 1972. It carries an average of 346 vehicles a day, according to a 2008 VDOT traffic count.

 

State forces are performing the construction work, which is estimated to cost $427,300. Workers will replace a 40-year-old steel beam and timber bridge deck, as well as address settlement on the bridge approaches.

 

Real-time updates on work zone locations, travel times, and traffic incidents can be found through 511 Virginia, VDOT’s 24-hour traffic information system. 511Virginia can be accessed online at www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also call 511 from any phone in Virginia for traffic information.
