STAUNTON – Construction is progressing in Warren County on the South Fork River Bridge and Quadrant Roadway Intersection (QRI) with all six bridge lanes and all QRI lanes opening on Thursday, November 16. Driving and traffic pattern details plus videos are located at http://www.QRIVirginia.org. Motorists should be alert for new signs and traffic signal timing.

The QRI is located at Route 340/522 (Shenandoah Avenue) and Route 55 (West Strasburg Road). The South Fork Bridge is on Route 340/522, near the Town of Front Royal. The QRI is the first Quadrant Roadway Intersection in Virginia.

Significant congestion is expected to continue Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as final paving, line painting and median construction just north of the bridge wrap up over the next couple of weeks. The work takes place during the daytime because nighttime temperatures are too cold for paving. No lane closures will take place from November 22-26.

Motorists may be able to avoid traffic delays on Route 340/522 by using John Marshall Highway (Route 55 East) between Front Royal and Interstate 66 at exit 13 in the Linden area.

All work is weather permitting.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at http://www.511Virginia.org.
