Bridge project in Albemarle ‘substantially completed’

Item by Chris Graham

Good news for travelers who drive back and forth to Charlottesville every day. The bridge rehab on Interstate 64 over Stockton Creek at mile marker 108 has been substantially completed, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation, and both westbound lanes were reopened to traffic yesterday afternoon.

But we’re not out of the woods entirely. Single-lane closures are tentatively scheduled for the overnight hours Saturday night and into Sunday morning. The contractor in charge of the project is scheduled to complete the application of pavement markings this weekend. That work is scheduled, weather-permitting, between 7 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday.

Work will continue today in the area of the bridge with crews completing project work underneath the bridge. Motorists should continue to be alert for construction equipment and workers on the highway shoulders near the bridge.
