Under Construction: Bridge Maintenance Projects

Cost and schedule ►

Under Construction by State Forces 


Route 656 (Bremo Road), Fluvanna County 

VDOT will rehabilitate two bridges on Route 656 (Bremo Road) in Fluvanna County.

Beginning April 5, Route 656 will be closed to through traffic. Weather permitting, the road will reopen on July 5 when work on both bridges is complete.

Crews will first rehabilitate the bridge over Holman Creek, located about 0.3-mile east of Route 657 (Bremo Bluff Road). This bridge was built in 1932 and has a posted weight limit of 15 tons. 

Once work on the Holman Creek bridge is complete, crews will begin work on the second structure, located approximately 150-feet east of the first bridge. This bridge, which carries traffic over a branch of Holman Creek, was built in 1952 and has a posted weight limit of 18 tons.

When construction is complete in July, both bridges will be able to carry all legal weight vehicles. 

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.


Route 713 (Maidston Road), Fauquier County 

Route 713 (Maidstone Road) in Fauquier County will be closed next week while VDOT works on the bridge over Goose Creek near Route 624 (Lost Corner Road).

The road will be closed to through traffic Monday through Friday between Route 710 (Rectortown Road) and Route 17 (Winchester Road).

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.

Benefits 

The small bridge program rehabilitates aging bridges that serve county residents. If not replaced, the existing bridges will continue to deteriorate and would eventually have to be closed to vehicular traffic.
