Stefaniga Road traffic will be detoured between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily as crews replace the bridge deck over Potomac Run

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – On Monday, May 10, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin work to replace the existing wooden deck on the Stefaniga Road bridge over Potomac Run in Stafford County.

A recent inspection of the bridge revealed deterioration of the bridge deck. Replacing the deck will reduce the occurrence of potholes and pavement break-up.

The structure was built in 1993 and carries approximately 3,000 vehicles per day, according to a recent VDOT traffic count.

The bridge will be closed to traffic from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily beginning Monday, May 10 through Thursday, May 13.

During the bridge closure, drivers will be detoured approximately 11 miles around the work site using the following routes:

• Poplar Road (Route 616)
• Kellogg Mill Road (Route 651)
• Mountain View Road (Route 627)

Stefaniga Road will reopen to traffic at 3 p.m. each day.

The deck replacement project is expected to be complete on Thursday, May 13, weather permitting.
