Recently Completed: Route 3 at Robert O. Norris Bridge Painting Project

Cost and schedule ►

Construction began in January 2017 to paint the three center spans of the Robert O. Norris Bridge over the Rappahannock River.

Construction is scheduled to be complete by June 2018.

Cleaning and painting the bridge’s center spans will protect its structural steel elements and prevent deterioration and corrosion.

This project will complete a full painting of the Norris Bridge spans. Additional spans were cleaned and painted between 2009-2012.

Two temporary traffic signals control one-way alternating traffic at the bridge's center spans 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The signals will remain in place until the end of the painting project in June 2018.

The Norris Bridge is located on Route 3 between Lancaster and Middlesex counties.
