FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will close Route 677 (Camp Road) at the bridge over Herring Creek in Caroline County on Monday, Nov. 30, to replace two large drainage pipes with a slightly larger concrete box culvert.
Camp Road will be closed to traffic between Route 694 (Courtney Road) and Route 693 (Herring Creek Road) for approximately three months. During construction, drivers will be detoured 5 miles around the closure.
Signs will be posted along the recommended detour route:
- Route 694 (Courtney Road)

VDOT will replace two deteriorated 5-foot concrete pipes installed in 1964 with a single 8-foot by 6-foot concrete box culvert. The larger box culvert will improve drainage on Camp Road.
