Public also encouraged to sign up for email updates on project

CULPEPER—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has updated its online project page for the Jefferson Park Avenue bridge replacement to include a frequently asked questions section.

The project page,, is designed to keep the public informed on the project’s background and scope, as well as any updates as work progresses. 

In early April, VDOT began construction near the intersection of Jefferson Park and Fontaine avenues to replace a narrow, aged bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad. Slated for completion by September 24, 2012, the new 67-foot bridge will feature travel lanes built to current standards as well as dedicated bike lanes and a sidewalk to accommodate the significant pedestrian traffic in the area.

While a physically small construction area at just 611 feet, the JPA bridge replacement affects a main approach to the Fry’s Spring neighborhood, adjacent businesses and four residences within the work area. Residents and business patrons now have the opportunity to stay informed on the project’s status by signing up for email updates. To be added to the distribution list, email
