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.

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


Route 629 (Deep Creek Road) over Phils Creek, Fluvanna County

The Route 629 bridge over Phils Creek in Fluvanna County will be closed to traffic beginning March 6, while VDOT rehabilitates the bridge. Weather permitting, the road is expected to reopen to traffic March 24.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.

The bridge, which was built in 1953, has a posted weight restriction of 12 tons. Once construction is complete, the timber-deck bridge with steel beams will be rated for all legal loads.

Phils Creek bridge carries approximately 140 vehicles daily, according to a 2015 traffic count.
