Construction Updates

The extended lane closures on the Route 250 bridge for hydro-demolition and overlay are complete. 

Drivers should expect nightly lane closures on the bridge for pavement marking and other finishing work.

Nightly lane closures are also scheduled on the Route 29/250 Bypass while the contractor finishes working underneath the bridge.

Project Purpose

The purpose of this project is to extend the service life of the Route 250  (Ivy Road) bridge over the Route 29/250 bypass in Albemarle County.

The work involves rehabilitating the concrete bridge abutments underneath the bridge and performing an overlay on the bridge deck to improve the riding surface for motorists.

Lane Closures

Shoulder closures and overnight lane closures are expected to occur on Route 29 while the contractor works underneath the bridge.

After work underneath the bridge is complete, the contractor will begin working to rehabilitate the bridge decks. Extended single-lane closures on Route 250 will be needed to complete the work. 

The public will be notified about traffic impacts and changes through media reports, social media posts and 511.

Lane closures and other traffic impacts for the upcoming week are posted on Friday afternoons on VDOT's traffic alerts page.
