Work began last week to remove the southbound Fox Mill Run bridge on Main Street near the Gloucester Library. The project is expected to be completed this fall, state transportation officials said.
David Steele, area construction engineer for the Virginia Department of Transportation, said Tuesday that work on the project has been progressing well since it began last fall. Crews have been aided by a mild winter, which resulted in few weather delays so far.
Early phases included placing new railings on the northbound bridge in preparation for increased traffic when the southbound traffic was switched over to share that span, and placing a temporary crossover to divert the southbound traffic to share the northbound bridge.
Also, utility work included placement of a new 16-inch sewer force main, with the new main placed toward the wetlands area on the library side of the southbound bridge, Steele said. Howard Brothers of New Kent County was in charge of the sewer line project.
