Under Construction: Bridge Maintenance Projects
Cost and schedule ►
Under Construction by State Forces
Route 245 (Old Tavern Road), Fauquier County
Crews are working on the slope under the Interstate 66 bridges. The northbound right lane is closed and the speed limit is reduced to 45 MPH. Use caution when traveling through the work zone.
Route 656 (Bremo Road), Fluvanna County
VDOT will rehabilitate two bridges on Route 656 (Bremo Road) in Fluvanna County.
Beginning April 5, Route 656 will be closed to through traffic. Weather permitting, the road will reopen on July 5 when work on both bridges is complete.
Crews will first rehabilitate the bridge over Holman Creek, located about 0.3-mile east of Route 657 (Bremo Bluff Road). This bridge was built in 1932 and has a posted weight limit of 15 tons.
Once work on the Holman Creek bridge is complete, crews will begin work on the second structure, located approximately 150-feet east of the first bridge. This bridge, which carries traffic over a branch of Holman Creek, was built in 1952 and has a posted weight limit of 18 tons.
When construction is complete in July, both bridges will be able to carry all legal weight vehicles.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the closure.

The small bridge program rehabilitates aging bridges that serve county residents. If not replaced, the existing bridges will continue to deteriorate and would eventually have to be closed to vehicular traffic.
