Coming Soon: Route 17 (Marsh Road), Fauquier County

Cost and schedule ►

The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the superstructure of the Route 17 southbound bridge that spans the Norfolk Southern Railway and Route 805, located south of Bealeton in Fauquier County. 

After the Dec. 2015 public hearing, VDOT determined that additional right of way would be needed to complete the project. 

The existing concrete bridge was built in 1948. This project will replace the bridge’s superstructure, including the deck and railings. The work also involves widening the existing abutments and piers as well as rebuilding the roadway approaches. 
The rehabilitated bridge will maintain two 12-foot travel lanes and feature improved shoulders for a total deck width of 40 feet. With this project, the Route 17 northbound bridge will be painted to extend its service life. 
During construction, VDOT will work in phases to maintain a single travel lane over the southbound bridge. Work is anticipated to begin in summer of 2021. Only minor traffic impacts are expected on Route 17 northbound. 


This project will rehabilitate an existing bridge on a state-maintained roadway. If not rehabilitated, the existing bridge will continue to deteriorate and will eventually have to be closed to vehicles.
