Update: Due to weather, this traffic shift has been rescheduled for Thursday, Sept. 20 between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

– Southbound traffic on Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) between Gloucester Parkway and Hay Road (Route 642) will shift to newly constructed southbound lanes of the new median-divided roadway and to the new southbound bridge over the Washington & Old Dominion Trail Tuesday, Sept. 18 between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. (weather permitting), according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Temporary stoppages will be needed for the traffic shift. Drivers should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes.

Southbound traffic between Gloucester Parkway and Hay Road will continue to be one lane; the northbound traffic pattern between Hay Road and Gloucester Parkway, which is unaffected by Thursday’s traffic shift, will also continue to be one lane.

The shift is part of the Belmont Ridge Road widening project, which is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
