STAUNTON – Madison Run Bridge on Route 955 (Jackson’s Way) in Rockingham County will be closed for bridge work. This closure is expected to begin on Sept. 20 and will last until late October.  This bridge work will replace the bridge superstructure.

The detour is as follows:

Motorists wishing to access Route 955 west of the bridge should use the Route 253 (Port Republic Road) intersection with Route 955.
