Route 3 will be reduced to a single lane during daytime hours between
Lancaster and Middlesex counties on Feb. 20 −25
FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists can anticipate brief delays on Route 3 at the Robert O. Norris Bridge over the Rappahannock River next week.
Preparation work continues for an upcoming $12.8 million painting project of the bridge’s three center spans. The project contractor has started installation of the platform system required to paint the bridge.
Route 3 will be reduced to one lane on Norris Bridge from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 20 through Saturday, Feb. 25.
Motorists can expect delays of 10-15 minutes around 7 a.m. as workers set up the work zone and temporary traffic control equipment. Once this equipment is in place, motorists can anticipate delays of approximately 5 minutes for the remainder of the day through 5 p.m.
Norris Bridge Painting Project
Cleaning and painting the bridge’s center spans will protect its structural steel elements and prevent deterioration and corrosion.
This project will complete a full painting of the Norris Bridge spans. Additional spans were cleaned and painted between 2009-2012.
Real-time information on the bridge work zone and lane closures will be available on 511Virginia.
