Motorists will encounter a single-lane closure on the Gwynn’s Island bridge in Mathews today and Friday for an annual scheduled inspection of the span, said Kelly Hannon, a spokesperson for the Virginia Department of Transportation.

One lane will be closed on the bridge between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. both days, Hannon said. Flagging crews will direct traffic to alternate crossing the bridge.

The Route 223 bridge spans Milford Haven, and connects Gwynn’s Island with mainland Mathews County.
