On Nov. 11, 2013, VDOT completed the replacement of the Route 655 (Tinpot Run Lane) bridge over Tinpot Run, located just east of the town of Remington. The existing steel-beam, timber-deck bridge was built in 1960 and was posted with a 13-ton weight limit.

With this project, VDOT demolished the old bridge and constructed a new bridge of pre-stressed concrete beams with 10-foot-wide travel lanes and a 10-foot-wide shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians on the north side. Curb and gutter were added to Route 655 through the project limits.

The project also realigned the intersection of Route 655 and Route 1201 to improve safety.

This section of Route 655 carries approximately 1,100 vehicles per day.
