Route 614 (Devil's Bottom Road) Bridge Deck Replacement
|Brown's Creek, Lancaster County|
Project at a Glance
Construction will begin on Monday, July 9, 2012, to replace a bridge superstructure over Brown’s Creek on Route 614 (Devil’s Bottom Road) in Lancaster County.
The bridge will be closed to all traffic during construction, which is expected to conclude in mid-August 2012.
Signs have been posted along a detour route to guide motorists. Barricades will be installed at both ends of the bridge on July 9 to prevent traffic from crossing during construction work.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recommends motorists use Route 3 (Historyland Highway) and Route 604 (Merry Point Road) as detour routes during construction.
The bridge over Brown’s Creek was built in 1972. It carries an average of 346 vehicles a day, according to a 2008 VDOT traffic count.
State forces are performing the construction work, which is estimated to cost $427,300.
Workers will replace a 40-year-old steel beam and timber bridge deck, as well as address settlement on the bridge approaches.
