TRAFFIC SHIFT DECEMBER 8 AT ROUTE 340 CUB RUN BRIDGE PROJECT IN PAGE COUNTY

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation will perform a traffic shift on the Route 340 bridge over Cub Run in Page County. 

The shift is scheduled to take place on Thursday afternoon, December 8, on the south end of the project near Grove Hill Road.  This traffic pattern will remain in place until the new bridge is built and the roadway approaches tie into the new construction. 

All work is weather permitting, and the traffic shift schedule is subject to change.  

The new bridge is being built next to the existing structure, which is nearly 90 years old and reaching the end of its service life. The roadway approaches on both sides of the bridge will also be realigned to reduce curves along Route 340.  The speed limit through the work zone has been lowered to 45 miles, which is about a half-mile south of the entrance to Page County High School. Drivers should also be alert for occasional flagging operations during this project. 

On March 29, 2016, VDOT awarded a $4,337,363.83 construction contract to Kanawha Stone Company Inc. of Nitro, West Virginia. The Route 340 bridge project is scheduled for completion in fall 2017.
