RT. 6 BRIDGE WORK TO REQUIRE PERIODIC CLOSURES
VDOT contractor will set girders on Hardware River bridge project beginning Dec. 2

CULPEPER — A series of closures will occur on Route 6 (West River Road) in Fluvanna County beginning Tuesday, Dec. 2 so the Virginia Department of Transportation can safely set steel girders on the new bridge spanning the Hardware River. The bridge is located eight miles east of Scottsville.

Motorists should expect to see flaggers controlling the work zone, with one or two 45-minute closures of the road each workday through Friday, Dec. 12. The work will occur between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. to avoid disruptions to school transportation schedules and commuter traffic. VDOT has also coordinated the work with local emergency services.

Message boards will be placed on both sides of the bridge and will be updated each day to announce the start time of the next closure. Updates will also be provided through VDOT’s 511 phone system and on www.511virginia.org.

Replacement of the Hardware River bridge began in February by VDOT contractor Allegheny Construction Co. of Roanoke. The $4.39 construction project is scheduled to finish by Aug. 14, 2015. More information can be found on VDOT’s website at www.virginiadot.org/projects/culpeper/rt_6_hardware_river_bridge.asp.
