STAUNTON – The new Route 675 (Stoney Creek Road) bridge in Shenandoah County is scheduled to open to traffic on Tuesday, April 17, about one month ahead of schedule. By noon on April 17, contractors plan to open the bridge and remove a detour that has been in place for slightly more than a year.

The new two-lane bridge along Route 675 over Stoney Creek replaces an 85-year-old single-lane structure. The location is about five miles north of Edinburg and about 0.3-mile south of Route 42 (Senedo Road) in the Columbia Furnace area.

In January 2017, the Virginia Department of Transportation awarded a $1.3 million construction contract to Kanawha Stone Company Inc. of Nitro, West Virginia. The project has a contract completion date of May 18, 2018.

VDOT crews will install a final surface treatment on the new bridge. This work is expected to take a single day during April or May 2018, and will require a brief flagging operation to control traffic. All work is weather permitting.
