TRAFFIC ALERT: HALES FORD BRIDGE REPAIRS ON ROUTE 122 IN BEDFORD COUNTY SCHEDULED TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK
A single lane of traffic will remain open across the bridge until December 2017

SALEM – Repairs to the Hales Ford Bridge on Route 122 (Booker T. Washington Highway) are set to begin next week and will impact traffic until the end of the year. The bridge is located on the Bedford/Franklin County line in the area of Bridgewater Plaza. 

Beginning September 6, the bridge will be reduced to one lane and a temporary signal will be in place allowing traffic to alternate crossing the bridge. This traffic pattern will remain in place through December 2017 or until bridge deck overlay on the bridge is complete, weather permitting.

In addition, the lane will have a 10 foot width restriction across the bridge. All vehicles and trucks wider than 10 feet will need to seek alternate routes.

This project is estimated to be complete by May 2018.
