Bridge Maintenance Projects
Project at a Glance
Route 752 (Sillamon Road) over Deep Run, Fauquier Co.
The Route 752 bridge over Deep Run in Fauquier County will be closed for six weeks beginning Monday, Aug. 17 while crews replace the existing timber-deck bridge with a pre-stressed concrete slab structure and asphalt overlay. Weather permitting, the bridge is expected to reopen to traffic on Oct. 1.
The road will be closed at the bridge, approximately one mile east of Route 617 (Blackwells Mill Road). During the closure, through traffic will be detoured via Route 617. Private entrances will remain open during the work.
The bridge was built in 1977 and is currently posted with a 12-ton weight limit. After the work is complete, the bridge will be capable of carrying all legal loads.
On average, 190 vehicles use this route daily.
Route 629 (Welsh Run Road) over Welsh Run, Greene Co.
Route 629 (Welsh Run Road) in Greene County will close from Aug. 24 to Sept. 11 to replace the bridge over Welsh Run.
Local traffic will be able to use Route 629 on both sides of the bridge and all private entrances will remain open during the work. Through traffic will use the following detour: Route 629 to Route 743 (Advance Mills Road) to Route 617 (Dunnes Shop Road) to Route 633 (Amicus Road) and back to Route 629.
The project involves replacing the existing steel-beam, timber-deck bridge, built in 1975, with a concrete slab structure. This segment of Route 629 carries approximately 200 vehicles daily.
