McCormick Road bridge will be replaced

VDOT is getting ready to replace the McCormick Road Bridge that crosses over Emmet Street. The University of Virginia’s Jay Klingel says the more than 80-year-old bridge will be replaced this summer. Klingel says the stretch of Emmet Street that goes under the bridge will be shut down for several hours Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

VDOT has set up message boards near the McCormick Road Bridge alerting drivers about the closing.
