FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists will encounter brief overnight delays on Route 3 at the Robert O. Norris Bridge over the Rappahannock River during the first two weeks of June while bridge deck repairs are underway.
Route 3 will be reduced to one lane overnight on the following dates for repairs to the bridge’s concrete travel surface:
- Tuesday, May 31 − Thursday, June 2
- Monday, June 9 − Thursday, June 9
Work dates scheduled for the evenings of May 23-May 26 were cancelled due to weather and contractor scheduling.

The Norris Bridge crosses the Rappahannock River between Lancaster and Middlesex counties.
