REMINDER: NORRIS BRIDGE DECK REPAIR TONIGHT, TOMORROW NIGHT
Route 3 traffic will be reduced to one lane on the Norris Bridge from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
FREDERICKSBURG – Route 3 traffic will be reduced to one lane overnight on the Robert O. Norris Bridge on Wednesday, May 18, and Thursday, May 19 for repairs to the bridge’s concrete travel surface.
Bridge traffic will be reduced to one lane from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. each evening, weather permitting. Motorists will be guided through the work zone by a flagging crew and pilot vehicle.
Repair work scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, May 17, was cancelled due to rain.
The Norris Bridge crosses the Rappahannock River between Lancaster and Middlesex counties.
Crews will place new concrete over a 44 foot long section of the bridge’s travel surface. The concrete will fill in an area removed on Monday, April 18, after a portion of the concrete travel surface deteriorated. Temporary asphalt was placed until a permanent concrete repair could be scheduled.
Message boards will be posted on routes leading to the bridge in Middlesex and Lancaster counties to notify motorists of the overnight lane closures next week.
Real-time information on the bridge work zone and lane closures will be available on 511Virginia.
