OLD CAROLINA/JEFFERSON BRIDGE OVER I-66 TO RE-OPEN WEDNESDAY


HAYMARKET—The Virginia Department of Transportation will re-open the Old Carolina Road/South Jefferson Street bridge over I-66 Wednesday, Dec. 23, nearly five months earlier than scheduled. The bridge has been closed since September 2014.

The bridge’s new shared-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists remains under construction and is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.

The bridge replacement is part of the $64.5 million project to widen I-66 from four to eight lanes between Route 15 in Haymarket and Route 29 in Gainesville. The project is scheduled for overall completion in the summer of 2016.
