Under Construction

Route 787 (Watery Mountain Road) over Cedar Run, Fauquier County

The Route 787 bridge over Cedar Run in Fauquier County will be reduced to one lane beginning Jan. 9, while VDOT replaces the superstructure. Weather permitting, the road is expected to reopen to traffic March 3.

To accommodate local traffic on the dead-end road, the project will be completed in phases to maintain a single 10-foot travel lane. Traffic will be controlled by flagging.

A full one-day closure of the bridge, located 400-feet from Route 17 (James Madison Highway), is expected to remove the existing superstructure and place the new superstructure. A date for the full closure has not yet been scheduled.

The bridge, originally constructed in 1953, carries approximately 130 vehicles daily, according to a 2015 traffic count.
