Emergency bridge repair continues on Route 1

Route 1 southbound in Stafford County will remain reduced to a single lane at Accokeek Creek over the weekend as an emergency repair continues to a bridge rail and guardrail.

A truck struck the Accokeek Creek bridge rail on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 17, and crews started an emergency repair Friday morning, reports the Virginia Department of Transportation.

While repairs have been made to the bridge’s concrete rail, additional time is needed for the concrete to set, and to coordinate the installation of guardrail around nearby underground utilities. The right travel lane cannot safely open to traffic until the guardrail has been reinstalled.

Motorists are asked to follow work zone signs guiding traffic through this area. The bridge is located on Route 1 between the intersections of Courthouse Road and American Legion Road/Eskimo Hill Road.
