Project at a Glance
Route 691 (Ortman Road), Albemarle County
Route 691 will close Nov. 3-21 near Batesville for the replacement of the Stockton Mill Creek bridge.
The current steel-beam, timber-deck bridge, located approximately 0.3 mile north of Route 636 (Batesville Road), is posted with a 16-ton weight limit. In its place VDOT will install a concrete bridge that can carry all legal loads.
Route 691 will be closed to all traffic while the bridge is replaced. A detour will be in place to direct motorists from Route 691 to Route 692 (Plank Road) to Route 635 (Craigs Store Road) to Route 636 and back to Route 691.
According to a 2012 traffic count, 360 vehicles use Route 691 daily.
