New traffic pattern for Route 54 bridge work in Ashland

Posted: Updated:

Beginning Thursday, July 10, drivers will see a new traffic pattern on Route 54 over Interstate 95 in Ashland for a bridge replacement project.

The Virginia Department of Transportation said Route 54 will be reduced to one 12-foot lane in each direction between Hill Carter Parkway and Mount Herman Road. Additionally, a temporary traffic signal has been installed at the interchange of I-95 north and Route 54 west to ease exiting interstate traffic congestion.

For the duration of the project, the posted speed limit will be reduced to 35 miles per hour. Drivers can expect delays, particularly during peak travel times.

Crews began work to replace the bridge over the interstate in May. The project is expected to wrap up in November 2015.

More information on the Route 54 bridge replacement project is available at Live traffic camera feeds and real-time listings of road conditions and closures in Virginia are available on VDOT's 24-hour traffic and travel information website,
