FROM STAFF REPORTS
New steel beams are set to arrive for the Fredericksburg side of the Chatham Bridge beginning Monday.
The deliveries will cause traffic stoppages near the intersection of Sophia and William streets, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. The traffic stops will last for up to 15 minutes several times on several days. No parking will be allowed in the area to allow trucks to maneuver the long beams to the bridge site.
The other days set for the deliveries are Thursday, Friday and March 1–4.
Steel beams have already been installed on the Stafford side of the bridge.
The project remains on schedule for an October opening, local VDOT spokeswoman Kelly Hannon said in a news release.
The bridge closed in June for the $23.4 million rehabilitation project. A new road deck will be laid atop the existing concrete piers. The bridge also will be slightly wider, with a multiuse path and observation deck on one side.
