Old Carters Mill Rd. section closed for bridge work
Update: An earlier version of this story, identified the affected section as Atoka Road.
The bridge across Old Carters Mill Road (Route 715) in Northern Fauquier will remain closed until July 13 for rebuilding.
A Virginia Department of Transportation bridge crew will replace the steel-beam and timber-deck bridge, built in 1974, with a cast concrete structure. The new bridge will be slightly wider and able to handle all legal weight vehicles.
During the closure, which started Monday, June 11, motorists should use alternate routes according to VDOT.
