Capitol Landing Road bridge to close this week for repairs


Three Williamsburg-owned bridges will close next week for maintenance and repairs, according to city spokeswoman Lee Ann Hartmann.

» The Capitol Landing Road bridge between Lafayette and First streets will close on Nov. 13, and no traffic will pass through until the work is completed. Public Works staff will complete sidewalk repairs at the same time.

» On Nov. 27, the Page Street bridge will close from Lafayette to Penniman streets. Cars can proceed in one lane in either direction.

» Starting Dec. 4, staff will work on the Bypass Road bridge, between Richmond Road and Colony Drive. Traffic will merge into one lane in each direction.

Work will be done during the daytime, and repairs should take a week. Portsmouth-based Forsythe Caulking will complete the work for $85,503.
