RT. 604 BRIDGE IN GREENE CO. NOW OPEN TO TRAFFIC
Repairs to structure over Parrott Branch will remove posted weight limit

CULPEPER –The bridge over Parrott Branch on Route 604 (Celt Road) in southwestern Greene County reopened to traffic this morning. It was closed on Monday so the superstructure could be repaired
.
During the closure a bridge crew from the Virginia Department of Transportation replaced the timber deck beams and the steel beams on the bridge. The repairs will allow all legal weight loads to cross the bridge, which was previously posted for a 10-ton weight limit. The structure is located just south of Route 633 (Amicus Road).
