FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Route 360 will be reduced to a single travel lane overnight at the Downing Bridge in the Tappahannock area on the evenings of Wednesday, Sept. 28 and Thursday, Sept. 29.

Travelers can expect brief delays at the bridge between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. both evenings. Automatic flagging assistance devices, operated by certified flagging crews, will direct one-way, alternating traffic through the work zone.
