CHESAPEAKE, Va. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will close the Deep Creek Bridge to traffic on Wednesday morning from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 6 a.m.

The closure is necessary for contractors to repair a portion of the wood bridge railing that was damaged by a vehicle.

The repair requires contractors to work both above the bridge and below the bridge, and requires daylight for safety reasons.

Lengthy delays are expected during this time.

Suggested alternate routes are:

Vehicles traveling south on George Washington Highway in Deep Creek should take I-64 West to Dominion Boulevard/Veteran’s Bridge and then South on Moses Grandy Trail back to George Washington Highway.

Vehicles traveling south on Cedar Road/Moses Grandy Trail or north on George Washington Highway and need to cross the Deep Creek Bridge should take Dominion Boulevard/Veteran’s Bridge to I-64 East to George Washington Highway.
