NEW SCHEDULE FOR BRIDGE WORK ON NORTHBOUND RT. 29 IN GREENE CO.
Latex overlay will extend the service life of the Rapidan River bridge
CULPEPER — VDOT has adjusted the schedule for the ongoing work on the northbound Route 29 (Seminole Trail) bridge over the Rapidan River in Greene County near the Madison County line.
One northbound lane will be continuously closed until Oct. 20. The right lane will reopen by Oct. 13. On Tuesday, the contractor will begin working in the left lane.
After Oct. 20, all remaining work will be performed via nightly lane closures between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
VDOT contractor Lanford Brothers Company, Inc. of Roanoke will perform a hydro demolition of the bridge deck and apply a latex overlay to extend the service life of the bridge. Hydro demolition involves using high-pressure water jets to remove deteriorated concrete to create a better bonding surface for the overlay.
