Weems Road is closed to through traffic between Gaskins Road and Christ Church Road for an emergency project to replace a failed drainage pipe and reconstruct the road and travel surface. Detour signs have been posted to guide motorists through the work zone. The road is anticipated to reopen by Feb. 8, 2019.
Emergency Road Repairs:
Tropical Storm Michael
Emergency repair work continues to rebuild several state-maintained roads that sustained severe damage during Tropical Storm Michael. These roads require major reconstruction or replacement of pipes and culverts before they can safely be reopened. Emergency procurement methods are being used to expedite repairs.
Estimated construction schedules for the remaining closed roads in Fredericksburg District are listed below:
King William County
·      Route 662 (Sharon Road): Anticipated to reopen in August 2019.This is a new date from the previously estimated reopening date of Jan. 21, 2019. The original date was based on an initial damage assessment after the storm. Further inspection by VDOT structural engineers identified a broken drainage culvert at the site, which will require more complex and extensive repairs. Crews will reconstruct a slope near the road and repair the culvert.
Northumberland County
·       Route 201 (Courthouse Road): Anticipated to reopen in June 2019. This is a new date from the previously estimated reopening date of Feb. 28, 2019. Crews are replacing a damaged set of four 96-inch drainage pipes with a triple set of concrete box culverts, with each culvert measuring 12 feet by 10 feet. The replacement culverts are larger than originally estimated, which has resulted in a longer fabrication period. The culverts must be fabricated to these specific dimensions, which lengthens the repair schedule.
·      Route 634 (Spring Road): Anticipated to reopen in August 2019.Crews are repairing the bridge and replacing a washed out section of road.
·      Route 642 (Knights Run Road): Anticipated to reopen in late February 2019.Crews will be replacing two 60-inch drainage pipes with two 72-inch reinforced concrete drainage pipes, and installing pipe headwalls.

Crews are repairing a void underneath the travel surface and replacing a damaged 72-inch corrugated metal drainage pipe with a 6 foot by 6 foot concrete box culvert.
Westmoreland County
