by Audrey Thomasson

WHITE STONE—Traffic will be reduced to a single lane on the Robert O. Norris Bridge during the day starting Monday, August 26 through Thursday, August 29.

The Virginia Department of Transportation reports between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. north and south bound traffic will be directed by flaggers to alternate passing through a work zone. The work is part of a bridge maintenance project that is underway through September.

Workers will be cleaning, rehabilitating and replacing bridge pins and removing rust that has developed due to environmental exposure. The pins and attached hangers help the bridge beams absorb the stress of vehicle traffic. Most of the work will take place underneath the bridge and outside travel lanes, however, periodic closures are needed to set up and move a work platform and position equipment.
