The Virginia Department of Transportation has closed the bridge over Christians Creek on Va. 907 in Augusta County. This location is just off Va. 612.

Keith Weakley, the VDOT Staunton District bridge engineer, said that it appears that a vehicle struck the bridge causing extensive damage.

A sign is posted at the bridge site stating that vehicles over five tons are prohibited from using the bridge. The bridge, built in 1900, is a steel truss bridge.

Options concerning bridge repairs and future use of the bridge are under evaluation. The damage was discovered on Jan. 28 following inspections in the area after recent flooding.
