Under Construction: Bridge Maintenance Projects
Cost and schedule ►
Under Construction by State Forces
Route 603 (Bowlers Mill Road), Louisa County
VDOT will replace the Route 603 (Bowlers Mill Road) bridge over the South Anna River in Louisa County.
To accommodate traffic on the dead-end road, crews will construct a temporary road adjacent to the bridge.
Motorists should expect construction activities starting May 26. The new bridge will open to traffic in late September.
The existing Route 603 bridge was built in 1982 and is considered structurally deficient with a posted weight restriction. After construction, the bridge will be open to all legal-weight vehicles.
Route 810 (Blackwells Hollow Road), Albemarle County
Starting June 15, VDOT will rehabilitate the Route 810 (Blackwells Hollow Road) bridge over Halls Creek at Route 687 (Shiffletts Mill Road) in Albemarle County.
The road will be closed to through traffic at the bridge. Weather permitting, the bridge will reopen to traffic July 31. A temporary pedestrian bridge will be installed for public use.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.
The existing Halls Creek bridge was built in 1932 and has a posted weight restriction of 19 tons. Once construction is complete, the bridge will be open to all legal weight vehicles.

The small bridge program rehabilitates aging bridges that serve county residents. If not replaced, the existing bridges will continue to deteriorate and would eventually have to be closed to vehicular traffic.
