ROUTE 625 (PASSING ROAD) BRIDGE CLOSED AT CAROLINE, KING AND QUEEN LINE

road-work-signThe Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will temporarily close a bridge on Route 625 (Passing Road) at the Caroline and King and Queen county line for a two-week repair project. The bridge over Byrd’s Mill Pond will close to traffic at 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, and will re-open by 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31. The existing bridge is structurally deficient, and has a weight posting of 3 tons. VDOT state forces will install new steel beams and timber deck materials, and add a new bridge railing. An average of 48 vehicles a day cross the bridge, which was built in 1958. Detour signs will be posted along the route to guide motorists.
