Route 360 over the Rappahannock River at the Town of Tappahannock will be intermittently reduced to a single lane over 30 minutes to let crews take samples for a future bridge repair

FREDERICKSBURG – Travelers crossing the Downing Bridge over the Rappahannock River at the Town of Tappahannock can expect brief delays this morning between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. as crews take samples required for a future bridge rail repair.

Route 360 will be reduced to a single lane on the bridge for two 10-minute periods between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. All travel lanes will be re-opened between the two 10-minute periods to let any congestion clear.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is scheduling a future bridge rail repair to Downing Bridge. A section of rail was damaged during a March 2 crash on the bridge involving an overturned tractor-trailer.

The Downing Bridge is located between Warsaw in Richmond County and Tappahannock.

Real-time updates on the work zone status and lane closures will be available on 511Virginia.
