VDOT BEGINS HERRING CREEK BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Route 600 motorists should expect brief delays during the mobilization phase

FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has begun the initial phase of construction of the new bridge over Herring Creek in King William County.

Abernathy Construction Corporation crews are mobilizing construction equipment and installing work zone signs on Route 600 in the vicinity of the existing bridge over Herring Creek.  During this phase of the project, motorists traveling on Route 600 should expect brief delays Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day through Friday, March 15.


Once the mobilization is complete, work will begin on the new structure that will be located adjacent to the existing bridge.  The project will have minimal impacts to the traveling public.  

The new structure will feature two 12-foot travel lanes with an 8-foot shoulder on each side.  The new bridge approaches will include guardrail that will enhance motorists’ safety.   

The total cost of the project is $2.5 million and construction is expected to be complete by mid-December 2013.
