RAILROAD CROSSING PROJECT TO AFFECT BRANDERS BRIDGE ROAD TRAFFIC BEGINNING IN MID FEBRUARY
Through traffic to use posted detour around construction

COLONIAL HEIGHTS – On Friday, February 17, CSX will begin repaving the railroad crossing at Branders Bridge Road (Rt. 625), located west of the Boulevard/U.S. 301/Route 1, providing a smoother surface for drivers to cross the tracks. In order to maintain the safety of the construction crews working on this project, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will temporarily close Branders Bridge Road (Rt. 625). While no vehicles will be permitted to cross the railroad tracks at Branders Bridge Road during the full closure, there will be limited access to areas close to the railroad tracks for local traffic only. The work is expected to be complete by 9 a.m. Wednesday, February 22, weather permitting.

Drivers can use the following posted detour around the railroad crossing work:

  • Northbound Branders Bridge Rd. (Rt. 625): Take Lakeview Avenue east to the Boulevard/U.S.301/Rt. 1 south back to Branders Bridge Rd. (Rt. 625) north.  
  • Southbound Branders Bridge Rd. (Rt. 625): Take the Boulevard/U.S.301/Rt. 1 north to Lakeview Avenue west back to Branders Bridge Rd. (Rt. 625) south.
