After 7 months and 5 days, the bridge is finally open. The following is an update from our VDOT rep:
There is some corrective work that will need to be done after the bridge is opened to traffic so we will probably be seeing the contractor out there for a few more weeks. This should not cause the bridge to be closed again but it may require for flagging operations with one lane operation in the non-peak hours. I do not expect that it would cause any traffic disruptions.
The bridge is open. The detour signs will be taken down tomorrow because it would not be safe for the workers to take them down in the dark.
Time for a little Celebration!
