Route 651 (Sumerduck Road), Fauquier County
|Replacement of bridge over Sumerduck Run|
Project at a Glance
Lengths and Limits
0.123 mile; from 0.01 mile west to 0.11 mile east of Route 615 (Silver Hill Road)
The purpose of this project is to replace the structurally deficient and functionally obsolete Route 651 bridge over Sumerduck Run in Fauquier County.
The existing concrete-slab bridge was built in 1933 and is substandard in width at 19.5 feet.
Route 651 carries 1,064 vehicles per day, according to a 2010 traffic count.
What is Proposed?
VDOT proposes to construct a new concrete bridge that will be 55 feet long and 30 feet wide, including four-foot paved shoulders that can be used by bicyclists. Architectural treatments are proposed for the bridge railings.
VDOT will close Route 651 during construction, which is expected to last eight months. The proposed detour route uses Route 615 (Silver Hill Road) to Route 633 (Dyes Lane) to Route 17 (Marsh Road) and back to Route 651.
