No Movement On Norris Bridge Replacement Start Date

An attempt to move up the start date for construction of a new Robert O. Norris Jr. Memorial Bridge falls short. According to the Rappahannock Record a s $400 million budget amendment by Sen. Ryan McDougle to speed up the replacement failed to make the current Senate budget proposal. The project remains on the Virginia DOT’s 50-Year Long-Term Plan with construction set to begin in 2036. Preliminary work continues on the replacement project as well as ongoing maintenance on the existing structure.
