Remington truss bridge closing for rehabilitation

Built in 1930, the truss bridge over the Rappahannock River at Remington has an 11-ton limit.
The Virginia Department of Transportation in mid-November will close the Business Route 15 (Remington Road) bridge over the Rappahannock River at the Culpeper-Fauquier county line for rehabilitation.

“Drivers should expect intermittent daytime flagging operations for the next two weeks while the contractor prepares the work area and installs construction signs,” VDOT’s Will Merritt said.

Starting Nov. 11, the bridge will close to through traffic. Drivers will use a detour of Route 15/29 to Route 651 (Freemans Ford Road/West Main Street) to access Remington. The detour will remain in place through project completion in October 2020.

Under a $2.1 million construction contract, M.D. Miller Co. Inc. of Baltimore will replace the bridge deck, improve the approach spans on each end of the span and rehabilitate selected truss members. The truss span will remain in place during construction.

Message boards will be in place soon to notify the public. 

Built in 1930, the truss bridge has a posted 11-ton weight restriction.
