Drawbridge at West Point to open for repairs
All Route 30 traffic crossing the Eltham Bridge over the Pawmunkey River at West Point will be stopped in three 15-minute intervals between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 20.
During the three 15-minute traffic stops, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) bridge crews will be conducting routine maintenance on the bridge.
After each 15-minute opening, the drawbridge will close and allow all waiting traffic to proceed. Crews will then perform another drawbridge opening.
The work is anticipated to be complete by 8 p.m. Wednesday.
