In Design: Route 651 (Sumerduck Road), Fauquier County
Cost and schedule ►
This project will widen and replace the superstructures on two bridges on Route 651 (Sumerduck Road). The first is structure 6171 that crosses a stream and the second, structure 6172 (B663) that crosses Rock Run. These are located approximately 0.60 of a mile and 1.07 mile, respectively, southwest of U.S. 17.
The need stems from a history of the rails being hit on all quadrants of these structures. It is intent of this project by modifying the substructure an increase of the width can be obtained. It is anticipated the increase would be widen the clear roadway from approximately 19’ to at least 22’. This will also require and include some minor roadway improvements.

It is anticipated that both temporary and permanent easements will be required. These will be minor situated right around the structures and the remaining roadway work is anticipated to be contained within the existing right of way or prescriptive easement. The proposed easements will require a right of way phase.
