Route 662 (Allmondsville Road) Bridge Replacement Project over Fox Creek
About the Project
Feb. 6, 2018 UPDATE: Allmondsville Road has re-opened to through traffic. The bridge replacement project is complete.
A $2.4 million project construction project will begin in March 2017 to replace a structurally deficient bridge on Route 662 (Allmondsville Road) over Fox Creek in Gloucester County.
Allmondsville Road will be closed to through traffic at the bridge starting Thursday, March 30, 2017.
The detour will remain in place until the project is complete in April 2018.
VDOT recommends motorists use the following posted detour route during the project:
- Route 618 (Cappahosic Road)
- Route 614 (Hickory Fork Road)
- Route 606 (Ark Road)
- Route 662 (Allmondsville Road)
Motorists can anticipate an additional 5-10 minutes of travel time to reach their destination using the detour.
The bridge is currently posted with a 3-ton weight limit. When the new bridge opens to traffic in 2018, it will not have a posted weight limit.
An average of 140 vehicles a day cross the bridge over Fox Creek on Allmondsville Road, according to a 2015 VDOT traffic count.
The steel beam bridge has a timber deck and a timber foundation. It was built in 1937.
This project will replace the two-lane timber deck bridge with a two-lane concrete structure.
The project contractor is Bryant Structures, Inc., of Toano, Va.
