FREDERICKSBURG – Route 1 motorists may encounter brief travel delays overnight this week between the City of Fredericksburg and Stafford County as crews repair the Falmouth Bridge deck over the Rappahanock River.

Route 1 will be reduced to one northbound and one southbound lane overnight, with all northbound lanes open by 6 a.m. All southbound lanes will re-open by 7 a.m.

Lane closures are scheduled for the Falmouth Bridge at the following dates and times:

Monday, Dec. 5

  • 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. (northbound) and 7 a.m. (southbound)

Tuesday, Dec. 6 − Thursday, Dec. 8

  • 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (northbound) and 7 a.m. (southbound)

Crews are replacing temporary asphalt patches on the bridge deck with concrete to provide a smoother travel surface and more durable repair, and reduce the risk of potholes.
