Ma­jor detour

Rappahannock News - - THE RAPP -

A re­minder that the Vir­ginia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion will close the Whor­ton Hol­low Road bridge (Route 626, Rock Mills Road) over the Thorn­ton River for about six weeks start­ing this Mon­day, weather per­mit­ting (what with all the rain and flood­ing of late). The bridge, weather per­mit­ting, should re­open Sept. 13.

Dur­ing the project, crews will also close Route 622 at the in­ter­sec­tion of Route 626 for two days to al­low re­moval of the ex­ist­ing struc­ture and in­stal­la­tion of the new con­crete beams. Route 622 will be closed for up to six hours on Aug. 8 and Aug. 21. Route 622 will re­main open dur­ing the re­main­der of the project.

The Thorn­ton River bridge car­ries about 390 ve­hi­cles daily, and mo­torists will need to use al­ter­nate routes.
