FREDERICKSBURG  Drivers need to anticipate delays at the Downing Bridge over the Rappahannock River at the Town of Tappahannock next week. 

Route 360 will be reduced to a single lane on the bridge beginning at 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 18. 

Before the work zone begins, automated flagging stations will be placed near the center of the bridge and will control one-way traffic across the river, one direction at a time. 

Message boards were placed near the bridge approaches earlier today to alert drivers to the upcoming work zone. 

Crews will be taking measurements for future maintenance work.
