CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation will rehabilitate the Route 612 (Old Hollow Road) bridge over the North Fork Thornton River in Rappahannock County.
Beginning March 16, the road will be closed to through traffic at the bridge with a posted detour while crews replace the superstructure and deck. The road will reopen to traffic on April 24.
The bridge is located near Route 600 (Swindler Hollow Road).
During the closure, traffic will use Route 600 to Route 653 (Sycamore Ridge Road) which carries traffic back to Route 612.
About 140 vehicles travel this section of Route 612 daily, according to a 2018 count.
