DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – Repairs have begun on the bridge that carries eastbound traffic on Riverside Drive over the Sandy River next to Dairy Queen.

The project includes structural work to restore the structural capacity for legal loads along with other needed maintenance work.

The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year – weather permitting.

Alternating road closures will be needed during the process; however, at least one eastbound lane will always remain open and all businesses in the area will be accessible.

Motorists should slow down and be alert for traffic pattern changes.
