Flagging of traffic will occur near the work zone, with one or two 45-minute complete closures between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. each workday while the girders are moved into place. The work will be completed no later than Thursday, Dec. 18.

Message boards on both ends of the bridge will announce the times of upcoming closures. Updates will also be provided through VDOT’s 511 phone system and on
