The detour is now in place at Route 211 over the North Fork Thornton River in Sperryville, and will remain in effect through at least mid-summer 2019 while crews replace the westbound bridge span.

“The speed limit at all times will be 35 miles per hour, radar enforced — state troopers will be on the scene when you least expect to see them!” warns VDOT’s Tim Gray of Madison (far right), whose highway crew is seen here painting stripes on the detour lane that crosses the grassy median strip.
