About the Project
This project will rehabilitate the Route 301 bridge (James Madison Memorial Bridge) over the Rappahannock River between Caroline and King George counties.
Maintenance will occur below the bridge deck and includes repairing concrete throughout the structure and on the beam ends, replacing bearings, shoring up rip-rap on the slope, and replacing navigation lights on the fender system.
One lane will remain open in each direction during the work.
Construction began in April 2016.
This maintenance project was scheduled for completion in October 2017. Work has been extended to April 2019.
