ROUTE 675 IN SHENANDOAH COUNTY TO CLOSE APRIL 3 FOR BRIDGE REPLACEMENT

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation will close part of Route 675 (Stoney Creek Road) in Shenandoah County beginning Monday, April 3, while contractors replace the bridge over Stoney Creek. Construction is scheduled to take slightly more than a year. This project is located about five miles north of Edinburg, and about 0.33-mile south of Route 42 (Senedo Road) in the Columbia Furnace area.

Signs will direct Route 675 drivers on one of the following detours:

  • Drivers approaching from the south will turn right on Route 679 (Rittenour Road), left on Route 681 (Stoneburner Road) and then left on Route 42 to return to Route 675.
  • Drivers approaching from the north will turn left on Route 42, right on Route 681 and then right on Route 679 to return to Route 675.

On January 27, 2017, the Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $1.3 million contract to Kanawha Stone Company Inc. of Nitro, West Virginia. The project has a contract completion date of May 18, 2018. All work is weather permitting.
