CHESAPEAKE, Va. - The Centerville Turnpike Bridge reopened to vehicle traffic ahead of schedule Saturday at 7 a.m.

The bridge, which was closed for approximately six months while repairs were made on how it opens, will resume normal weekday openings and on-demand openings on weekends.

According to city officials, additional weekend closures will be required in the coming months as the bridge rehabilitation project continues into its final phases. These closures will not be scheduled during weekdays, and will be announced and posted online.
