[ARCHIVED] Intermittent Lane Closures at Fredericksburg VRE Train Bridges Begin January 16


VRE Rehabilitation Project includes bridge repairs

Short term, intermittent lane closures on Charles, Princess Anne, Caroline, and Sophia Streets are scheduled to begin the week of January 16th in the immediate area around the Fredericksburg Virginia Railway Express (VRE)/Amtrak station. The contractor for VRE’s rehabilitation project will begin preliminary inspections of the bridges crossing over these roads. This will involve rotating closures of one travel lane at a time under a bridge for a duration of approximately seven days. This preliminary work is anticipated to be completed by the end of March 2023.

Following the conclusion of these inspections, bridge repair work is scheduled to begin in March 2023 and run through the first part of 2024. The same travel lanes that were closed for inspections will be closed again, one at a time, for approximately 60-day periods, to complete minor concrete repairs. Drivers and pedestrians in the area around the train station are asked to remain cautious and watch for signage and work areas throughout the year.

These lane closures and bridge repairs are one part of VRE’s Fredericksburg Station Rehabilitation Project, which is a $5 million investment that includes lengthening the station’s platform and other improvements to enhance passenger safety and convenience.
