Dragons Run Bridge Project Begins Monday

A reminder that the DOT will close a section of Route 612 in Essex County beginning Monday for replacing a bridge over Dragon Run. The 5-month-long project will replace the current structurally deficient, steel beam timber deck bridge with a new 48-foot concrete slab structure on concrete abutments and concrete piles. During construction, drivers will be detoured approximately eight miles. Log on to 511virginia.org for project updates.
