The Virginia Department of Transportation on Monday, Sept. 20, will close the Keyser Road (Route 735) bridge over Buck Run near Hume for repairs.
The road will be closed to through traffic until Oct. 14, weather permitting, for the project.
The existing bridge, about 1.3-mile from Leeds Manor Road, was built in 1952 and has a posted weight limit of 16 tons. When construction is complete, the bridge will be open to all legal weight vehicles.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.
