WARREN COUNTY, Va. - Landford Brothers plans to mobilize the South Fork Bridge Monday night to begin patching, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. 

VDOT officials say the purpose of the project is to replace the deteriorating bridge that was originally built in 1941, and to address the severe traffic congestion in the bridge corridor. 

They say the Route 340/522 South Fork Bridge project plans to replace the existing bridge over the South Fork of the Shenandoah River and the Norfolk and Southern Railroad. The project will also reconfigure the intersection of Route 340/522 and Route 55 and reconstruct about 5,600 ft of roadway, according to officials. 

Patching will begin Monday night and is expected to take about three nights to complete. Officials with VDOT say work will stop Tuesday, December 31 through Wednesday, January 1 and will resume Thursday January 2, weather permitting. 

Members with the Virginia Department of Transportation are asking drivers to use extreme caution in the area and to expect delays.
