Through traffic to use posted detour around construction

COLONIAL HEIGHTS – CSX work continues near the railroad crossing at Branders Bridge Road (Rt. 625), located between Weldon Street and Wakefield Avenue. Due to heavy equipment moving in this area on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, April 2, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will temporarily close Branders Bridge Road (Rt. 625) from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. both days at the crossing location. All work is weather permitting. 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.

 

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