PUBLIC INVITED TO “PARDON OUR DUST” MEETING ON NORRIS BRIDGE PAINTING PROJECT
Information will be shared on upcoming maintenance project schedule and traffic impacts

FREDERICKSBURG – The public is invited to attend a “Pardon Our Dust” meeting to learn more about an upcoming maintenance project to paint the center three spans of the Robert O. Norris Bridge on Route 3 over the Rappahannock River.

The meeting will be held:

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

6-7:30 p.m.

Lancaster Middle School

191 School Street

Kilmarnock, VA 22482

A presentation on the project will begin at 6 p.m.

Information will be available about the project purpose, schedule and traffic impacts. Virginia Department of Transportation officials will be available to discuss questions and concerns.

Construction will begin in fall 2016. Cleaning and painting the bridge’s center spans will protect its structural steel elements and prevent deterioration and corrosion.

This project will complete a full painting of the Norris Bridge spans. Additional spans were cleaned and painted between 2009-2012. The bridge will be painted an identical shade of medium blue to match the previously painted spans.

The Norris Bridge is located on Route 3 between Lancaster and Middlesex counties.
