BRIDGE CLOSING FOR REPAIRS

VDOT is planning to begin work to repair a bridge on Route 612… Lily Pond Road… in King and Queen County. Plans now call for the closure of Lily Pond Road near the bridge at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12th. Weather permitting, the repairs to the bridge will take approximately two weeks to complete. Local traffic will need to follow a detour. The recommended detour route is approximately 9 miles. Message boards are being posted to alert drivers to the upcoming bridge repairs, that will fix the bridge over a swamp that was built in 1972. According to a recent traffic count, approximately 60 vehicles use the bridge each day. The road is anticipated to reopen to traffic on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
