Route 671 (Ballards Mill Road), Albemarle County

From Sept. 22 to Oct. 3, a VDOT bridge crew will replace the Route 671 bridge that spans Wards Creek, located approximately one half-mile south of Route 609 (Wesley Chapel Road) in Free Union. 

The current steel-beam, timber-deck bridge is posted with a 15-ton weight limit. In its place VDOT will install a concrete bridge that is three feet wider and can carry all legal loads.

Route 671 will be closed to all traffic while the bridge is replaced. A detour will be in place to direct motorists from Route 671 to Route 609 to Route 665 (Millington Road) and back to Route 671.

According to a 2009 traffic count, 80 vehicles use Route 671 daily.
 

Route 659 (Resettlement Road), Rappahannock County

Beginning Oct. 6 and finishing no later than Oct. 22, a VDOT bridge crew will replace the superstructure of the Route 659 bridge spanning the Jordan River, located near Flint Hill. 

The existing timber-deck bridge is posted with a 19-ton weight limit and is considered structurally deficient. In its place VDOT will install a concrete bridge capable of carrying all legal loads.

A detour will be in place to direct motorists from Route 659 to Route 606 (Fodderstack Road) to Route 628 (Dearing Road) and back to Route 659.

According to a 2013 traffic count, 280 vehicles use Route 659 daily.
