Bridge on Blackwell Road bridge replacement delayed
The bridge on Blackwell Road (Route 672) near the Warrenton Reservoir will remain closed two weeks longer than expected, the Virginia Department of Transportation announced Tuesday.
The two-lane bridge closed in October for replacement. But, “poor weather” has slowed the work, initially slated for completion Nov. 30, according to VDOT spokesman Will Merritt.
A half-mile north of town, the bridge over Cedar Run should reopen Dec. 13, depending on weather, Mr. Merritt said.
“Motorists should use alternate routes during the closure. Access to all commercial and private entrances will be maintained,” according to a VDOT press release.
More than 1,400 vehicles a day use the bridge, built in 1966. It stands eight-tenths of mile south of Airlie Road.
