Rudasill Mill bridge closed

VDOT engineers closed the Rudasill Mill Road (Route 621) bridge over Walnut Run yesterday (between U.S. 522 in Woodville and Fletcher’s Mill Road/Five Forks Road) after discovering “significant deterioration of the steel beams that support the deck.” The bridge had already been posted for reduced 16-ton-maximum loads, but VDOT said the deterioration made the bridge unsafe for vehicles until it is repaired — which will “likely take six to eight weeks.”
