One-day project will close road to through traffic on Nov. 24

CULPEPER — Route 708 (Dry Bridge Road) will be closed to through traffic at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 24 so a crew from the Virginia Department of Transportation can replace a 36-inch culvert pipe that carry storm water underneath the roadway. The road will reopen to traffic by 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

The pipe is located approximately 1.8 miles from Route 787 at the intersection of Route 637.  Local traffic will be able to use the road on both sides of the work area. The road work may be postponed due to bad weather.
