LANE CLOSURE ON DOWNING BRIDGE MONDAY NIGHT
Motorists may encounter brief delays on Route 360 in Tappahannock area
FREDERICKSBURG – A single lane closure on the Downing Bridge on Route 360 between Essex and Richmond counties is planned for Monday, Feb. 6 from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. the following morning.
Route 360 will remain open to traffic in both directions, but motorists will be directed by a flagging crew to take turns crossing the Downing Bridge in the open lane.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is carrying out final tasks associated with a construction and rehabilitation project on the bridge that began in fall 2010. Work is concluding several months ahead of the May 2012 scheduled completion date.
This estimated $4.5 million project rehabilitated the bridge superstructure and substructure, and cleaned and replaced expansion joints.
Motorists can find real-time information about construction work zones, traffic incidents and congestion on VDOT’s 24-hour travel information website, www.511Virginia.org. 511Virginia is also available by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
