Project Details

This project is located in Frederick County on the county line with Shenandoah County.  The project replaces the Cedar Creek Bridge, located on Route 623 (Fromans Road) southwest of the Stephens City limits.

The existing 10-foot wide single lane bridge was built in 1932 and has reached the end of its service life. The bridge is currently posted for a vehicle 10-ton weight limit. 

The proposed new bridge will have two 10-foot lanes with five-foot shoulders. The new bridge will be constructed in the same location as the current structure.

Construction is currently scheduled for the fall of 2019 and should take approximately eight months.

During construction the bridge will be closed to through traffic. A detour will be in place utilizing Route 606 (Gap Road). Route 606 will be upgraded from a graveled roadway to a hard surface roadway prior to the bridge construction.

In 2014 Route 623 had an average daily traffic count of 370 vehicles per day. By design year 2028 the estimated average daily traffic volume is 731 vehicles per day.

The total estimated cost of the project is $2,179,582.00.
