Road will be closed to through traffic; motorists advised to use posted detour

CULPEPER — In mid-November, the Virginia Department of Transportation will close the Business Route 15 (Remington Road) bridge over the Rappahannock River at the Culpeper-Fauquier county line for rehabilitation.

Drivers should expect intermittent daytime flagging operations for the next two weeks while the contractor prepares the work area and installs construction signs.

Starting Nov. 11, the bridge is scheduled to be closed to through traffic with a posted detour. Drivers will use Route 15/29 to Route 651 (Freemans Ford Road/West Main Street) to access Remington. The detour will remain in place through project completion in October 2020.

Under a $2.1 million construction contract, VDOT contractor M.D. Miller Co., Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland will replace the bridge deck, improve the approach spans on each end of the bridge and rehabilitate select truss members. The truss span will remain in place during construction. 

The existing truss bridge was built in 1930 and has a posted 11-ton weight restriction.

Message boards will be in place soon to notify the public.
