Newport News—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has cancelled plans to close all southbound lanes on the James River Bridge on Sunday, July 13 from 7 a.m. to noon. The cancellation is necessary to make modifications to the roofing contract. Crews were scheduled to lift materials onto the tower roof using a crane. The work will be re-scheduled at a later date.
