UnderConstructionGraphicYork Co., Va. – VDOT bridge maintenance crews have scheduled single-lane northbound closures on the George P. Coleman Memorial Bridge (Route 17 north) on Sunday, Apr. 21, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., that will also require two traffic stops of up to 30-minutes each in the northbound direction.

Maritime traffic will be impacted.

The single-lane closures are necessary to allow crews to perform electrical-mechanical work to the bridge. The bridge will remain fully operational throughout the work; however, the two 30-minute northbound traffic stops are necessary to allow crews to reposition equipment.

The scheduled maintenance activities are weather dependent. In the event of rain, the work will occur on Sunday, Apr. 28, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Additional lane closures and traffic stops are planned for the coming months and will be announced once a schedule is confirmed.

Motorists are encouraged to visit , call 511 or listen to Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) 1680 AM or call the Traffic Information Line at 757-361-3016 for current traffic and travel information.
