Detour for WB Route 50 This Weekend

10th Street Bridge over Route 50, closed for demolitionWestbound Route 50 between 14th Street and N. Pershing Drive will be closed this Saturday and Sunday for construction.

The Virginia Department of Transportation announced that a detour will be in effect from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. July 27 and 28. Drivers will exit onto 14th Street, which becomes 15th Street, turn right at Courthouse Road, left at Wilson Boulevard, left at N. Barton Street, left at 10th Street back to westbound Route 50.

The road closure will allow VDOT crews to erect steel beams for the new Courthouse Road bridge. The old bridge was torn down in January as part of the $39 million Route 50/Courthouse Road/10th Street interchange project.

The project is expected to be completed in mid-2014, VDOT said.
