Inspections, steel work and painting project to delay Norris Bridge traffic

FREDERICKSBURG—Drivers using the Robert O. Norris Jr. Memorial Bridge between Lancaster and Middlesex counties will encounter brief daytime and overnight delays over the next two weeks for a scheduled bridge inspection and ongoing maintenance work to repair structural steel on the bridge.

The inspection crew and contractor performing structural steel repairs are coordinating lane closures and work zones with the bridge painting project, reported Virginia Department of Transportation Fredericksburg District communications manager Kelly Hannon.

These work area delays through October 20 will be in addition to the temporary traffic signals that are controlling one-way traffic at the center spans of the Norris Bridge.
