A notice of willingness to hold a public hearing was issued in August 2020. 

This project will replace the existing structurally deficient Route 647 (Crest Hill Road) bridge over Thumb Run in Fauquier County.

VDOT proposes replacing the existing 88-year-old bridge. The segment of Route 647 between Route 688 (Leeds Manor Road) and Route 733 (Wilson Road) where the bridge is located carries about 800 vehicles per day according to a 2018 traffic count.

During construction, the bridge will be closed to traffic with a detour in place.

The project is expected to be advertised for bids in fall 2021 with construction beginning in early 2022.


This project will rehabilitate an existing substandard bridge on a state-maintained roadway that serves residential areas, local businesses and industries.

If not rehabilitated, the existing bridge will continue to deteriorate and will eventually have to be closed to vehicles.
