SINGLE LANE CLOSURES ON NORRIS BRIDGE NEXT WEEK
Traffic will alternate traveling in a single lane March 25 and 26

FREDERICKSBURG – One lane of the Robert O. Norris Bridge will be closed to traffic during daytime hours on Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26.

 

Motorists will be restricted to one lane on the bridge between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Motorists should expect minor delays in the work zone.

 

Instruments will be attached to the gusset plates of the bridge truss as part of a federally-funded research project. The project will test a new type of instrument designed to measure how traffic and other stresses affect a bridge.

The bridge is located on Route 3 over the Rappahannock River, and carries traffic between Lancaster and Middlesex counties.

For real time listings of work zones and road conditions and delays, visit VDOT’s 24-hour traffic and travel information website www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also access 511Virginia by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
