FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Route 3 travelers crossing the Rappahannock River between Lancaster and Middlesex counties can expect daytime delays at the Robert O. Norris Bridge during October to allow crews to perform a routine, scheduled bridge inspection.

Automated flagging devices will direct one-way, alternating traffic through the work zone when the inspection is underway.
