TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 43 (PEAKS ROAD) IN BEDFORD COUNTY TO BE IMPACTED BY BIG OTTER RIVER BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
A single lane of traffic will remain open across the bridge until spring 2019
SALEM – Work to replace the Route 43 (Peaks Road) bridge over the Big Otter River in Bedford County will require a long-term lane closure starting in August 2017. The bridge is located near the Route 682 (Woods Road) intersection about 2.7 miles north of Bedford.
Starting at 8 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 11, one lane of the two-lane bridge will be closed and a temporary signal installed to control traffic.
Route 43 will be limited to a single lane in the area of the bridge replacement until spring 2019 when work to replace the structure is completed. Vehicle widths will be limited to 10 feet.
To prepare for the long-term lane closure, flaggers may control traffic on the bridge during daytime hours on weekdays until the temporary signal is activated.
