This is a safety project to install studs on the grid deck of the James River Bridge (Route 17). The studs will provide additional traction and an added level of safety and security on the grid deck of the bridge. 

Preliminary work began in late August, and installation of the studs began on Tuesday, September 17. The stud installation work was finished on Friday, October 11, more than three weeks ahead of the scheduled completion date of November 1, 2013.
