Virginia Department of Transportation Press Release:
CULPEPER — Drivers are once again crossing Haneytown Creek on Route 631 (Haneytown Road) in Greene County. The new bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, more than two months ahead of schedule. The old bridge was destroyed by floodwaters during the torrential rain in late May.
The old bridge, a steel truss, timber deck structure located about a half-mile west of Route 810 (Dyke Road), had been scheduled for replacement in 2023 but VDOT bridge engineers accelerated the project when the bridge washed out.
The new bridge has a concrete deck, wider lanes and will be open to all legal weight vehicles.

VDOT’s Culpeper District includes the counties of Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock.
