RT. 230 BRIDGE REHABILITATION PROJECT UNDER WAY
Intermittent lane closures in place as crews prepare project site

CULPEPER — This week, the Virginia Department of Transportation begins a 15-month project to rehabilitate the Route 230 (Wolftown-Hood Road) bridge over the Conway River, located at the Madison-Greene county line.

For the next several weeks, motorists can expect intermittent lane closures while VDOT contractor Kanawha Stone Company, Inc. of Nitro, West Virginia installs construction signs and prepares the project site. Work hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The $1.99 million construction contract involves replacing the bridge’s superstructure, including its deck and riding surface, as well as its piers. The existing abutments will remain in place, but will be extended to support the wider bridge deck.

Beginning in late August and throughout the bulk of the work, two-way traffic will use a single 11-foot travel lane to cross the bridge, controlled by temporary signals on both ends of the project. Large vehicles, such as tractor-trailers should follow the posted detour via Route 29 (Seminole Trail) and Route 33 (Spotswood Trail). During construction, motorists should use caution traveling through the work zone and expect delays.

The project has a completion date of November 20, 2017. More details are available on VDOT’s website at www.virginiadot.org/projects/culpeper/230conway.asp.
