Route 17 Bridge Northbound Lanes To Repen Next Month

The Virginia Department of Transportation announced the northbound lanes of the Dragon’s Run bridge that takes Route 17 from Gloucester County to Middlesex County are expected to reopen early next month. The northbound lanes were closed after accidents damaged the structure. Crews will install a new 90′ long concrete rail and repair damaged guardrails. In 2028, the entire bridge will be replaced with one expected to cost around $12.5 million.
