STRUCTURAL REPAIRS COMPLETE ON RTE 501 BRIDGE AT SNOWDEN


AMHERST – Structural repairs to the Route 501 Bridge over the James River at Snowden (Amherst County/Bedford County line) are complete and the weight restrictions lifted.

In late March, findings of a routine inspection resulted in the posting of the structure at 16 tons for single unit vehicles and 18 tons for tractor-trailers.

Motorists should continue to be alert to possible temporary lane closures while signs are removed, spot painting is accomplished and clean up is completed.
