ROUTE 205 DETOUR TO CONTINUE FOR ONE WEEK

Ridge Road in Westmoreland County will now open to traffic on Friday, March 8
 
FREDERICKSBURG – Route 205 (Ridge Road) in Westmoreland County will open to traffic at the newly rehabilitated Tides Mill Stream bridge on Friday, March 8.
  The bridge has been closed to traffic since November 2, 2012. Traffic has been following a detour route on Route 631 (Longfield Road).
 
The detour was scheduled to be lifted by Friday, March 1. The opening has been delayed one week due to a delay in the delivery of beams needed to complete the bridge deck.
 
The beams have been delivered and installed, and paving work to complete the project will take place next week.
 
The project is still on schedule to be finished by March 15. Motorists should expect occasional single lane closures during daytime hours until this date.  
 
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is performing a major rehabilitation of the bridge, which is structurally deficient. The bridge was built in 1933.

This project rehabilitated the bridge's superstructure, as well as made minor repairs to the concrete substructure of the bridge.

A contract for this $3.7 million project was awarded to Bryant Contracting, Inc.

Real-time listings of travel times, work zones, and traffic incidents in Virginia are available on VDOT’s 24-hour traffic information website, www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also access 511Virginia by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
