Bridge closed for inspection may affect your commute

Local News

The Altivista/Hurt line bridge on Business Route 29 is closed Wednesday due to bridge inspection.

The bridge connects Campbell County to Pittsylvania County.

VDOT crews will be out to inspect the bridge and look at how bad the structure is.

Just last week VDOT lowered the weight limit on the bridge because of the deterioration.

The bridge will be closed until 4:30.

There will be detours including Routes 924, 29, and 43.

VDOT say on average more than 4,000 cars use this road every day.

VDOT is looking to start construction on the bridge this year.
