CUSTIS MILL POND ROAD IN KING WILLIAM WILL CLOSE FOR BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Custis Mill Pond Rd. over Mill Creek will be closed to through traffic starting Wednesday, Dec. 27
FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will soon begin work to replace a structurally deficient bridge over Mill Creek on Route 625 (Custis Mill Pond Road) in King William County.
VDOT will close Custis Mill Pond Road near the bridge over Mill Creek at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 27. The bridge is located between Seatons Lane and Wakema Road.
A detour will be in place for approximately 10 weeks, weather permitting, while construction is underway.
Signs will be posted along the recommended detour route, which is approximately six miles:
- Route 30 (King William Road)
- Route 626 (Rose Garden Road)
Message boards will be posted next week to alert drivers to the upcoming bridge work and detour.
Crews will replace the existing steel beam and deck with a 55-foot long concrete single slab bridge on new concrete abutments.
Built in 1968, the existing bridge is 35-feet long single span steel beam structure. The new bridge’s length is more than double the length of the existing structure.
New guardrail will also be installed following this project.
Custis Mill Pond Road carries an average of 930 vehicles a day, according to a 2016 VDOT traffic count.
