IMPROVED ROUTE 664 (GRANITE SPRINGS ROAD) BRIDGE OPEN TO TRAFFIC IN SPOTSYLVANIA
VDOT crew replaced bridge superstructure

 

FREDERICKSBURG – Route 664 (Granite Springs Road) in Spotsylvania County has re-opened to traffic this afternoon after Virginia Department of Transportation crews replaced the bridge’s superstructure in four days.  

Crews installed a new bridge deck, beams and bridge rail.  

After an inspection, the bridge’s weight posting signs can be removed.

The bridge was built in 1968. Prior to this week’s work, the bridge was structurally deficient.

Granite Springs Road is an unpaved state-maintained route that carries an average of 130 vehicles per day.
