Traffic signal will be activated on Wednesday, Oct. 7 in Gloucester County

FREDERICKSBURG – Temporary traffic signals will be activated next week on Route 198 (Dutton Road) at the bridge over Harper’s Creek in Gloucester County.

Construction is underway to rehabilitate this structurally deficient bridge, which was built in 1941. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractor are replacing the bridge’s superstructure, which will include installation of a new bridge deck, guardrail and improvements to bridge approaches.

Temporary signals will be activated on each bridge approach on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Traffic on the bridge will be reduced to one travel lane during construction. Traffic will alternate crossing the bridge in a single open travel lane, controlled by temporary signals.

Temporary signals will remain in place until the project’s estimated completion in May 2016.

The project contractor is Bryant Contracting, Inc., of Toano, Va.
