BRIDGE WORK TO RESUME ON ROUTE 767 IN FAUQUIER CO.
Crews to install temporary road around bridge for traffic to use during construction
CULPEPER — Starting May 18, the Virginia Department of Transportation will resume construction to replace the superstructure of the Route 767 (Tenerife Road) bridge over Walnut Branch in Fauquier County.
Initial construction tasks started in fall 2019 but the project was paused in the winter while bridge engineers refined the scope of the project.
To accommodate local traffic on the dead-end road, crews will install a temporary road around the bridge.
The project will be complete by late June.
The existing Walnut Branch bridge, which was built in 1970, is posted with a 13-ton weight restriction. After construction, the bridge will be open to all legal-weight vehicles.
