Bridge Maintenance Projects
Project at a Glance
Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock
Route 641 (Burnley Station Road) over Norfolk Southern Railroad, Albemarle County
Route 641 will be closed Sept. 11 through Dec. 1 while crews rehabilitate the bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad.
During the closure, drivers east of the bridge should use Route 20 to Route 33 (Spotswood Trail) to Route 644 (Burnley Road), which carries traffic back to Route 641. Motorists west of the bridge will reverse the detour. Driveway access will be maintained for local traffic.
The existing bridge, which was built in 1932, is posted with a 3-ton weight limit. After construction, the bridge will be open to all legal-weight vehicles.
Route 623 (Perkins Road) over Venable Creek, Fluvanna County
Route 623 will be closed for three months beginning Nov. 13 while crews replace the bridge's superstructure.
The bridge, which was built in 1951 and is located 0.4 mile east of Route 659 (Kent Store Way), will be closed while crews replace the existing timber deck and steel beams with a concrete slab.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.
Weather permitting, the bridge is expected to reopen to all legal-weight vehicles on Feb. 23, 2018.
The Venable Creek bridge carries just over 70 vehicles daily.
