TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 701 BRIDGE NEAR FIELDALE CLOSES FOR REPLACEMENT

On Friday, April 10, the Route 701 (Field Avenue) bridge over the Smith River will be closed to traffic.   The old, iron bridge is located in Henry County near Fieldale between Route 57 and Route 682 (River Road).  The bridge will be closed, so it can be demolished and replaced.

Traffic will be detoured between Route 701 and Route 57 onto Route 682 and Route 609 (Daniels Creek Road).

Work on the new bridge is expected to be completed by November 2010.

Questions about the bridge replacement can be directed to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Martinsville Residency Office at 276-629-2581.
