QUEEN STREET IN STRASBURG CLOSING APRIL 18 FOR BRIDGE REPLACEMENT

STAUNTON – Part of Queen Street (Route 1201) in the town of Strasburg in Shenandoah County is scheduled to close while contractors replace the bridge over Town Run. This closure is scheduled to begin Monday, April 18, and continue until work is complete in November 2016. All work is weather permitting.

Queen Street will be closed to through traffic between South Massanutten Street and Holiday Street, and detour signs will be posted. Drivers will have access to homes and businesses on both sides of the bridge.
