FREDERICKSBURG – The activation of temporary traffic signals on Route 3 at the John Andrew Twigg Bridge between Mathews and Middlesex counties has been postponed.


The signals had been scheduled to be activated on Monday, June 4. 


Within several weeks, a traffic signal will be activated on each side of the bridge over the Piankatank River to control traffic. The signals will be operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during a two-year bridge rehabilitation project.


One travel lane will be closed on the bridge throughout the project. Northbound and southbound traffic will alternate crossing the bridge in a single travel lane.


A concrete barrier will separate traffic from the work zone on the bridge.


During the week of June 4-8, motorists can expect to encounter traffic delays on the bridge between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Flagging crews will be directing traffic to alternate crossing the bridge in a single open travel lane.
