A Virginia Department of Transportation project to replace the bridge superstructure on Route 619/Burdette Road over Cattail Swamp is expected to start as soon as May 17.

Route 619 will be closed between Route 629/Line Pine Road and Route 635/Black Creek Road, with signed detours in place.

From Route 619 and Route 629:

  • Turn right on Route 629
  • Turn left on Route 635
  • Continue on Route 635 to Route 619 

During the closure, the existing bridge superstructure on Route 619 will be replaced with new steel beams, rail posts, a wooden deck and a guardrail. 

The bridge replacement project is expected to be finished by this summer. 

All construction work is dependent upon weather conditions, and drivers are encouraged to visit, call 511, or download Virginia’s free 511 mobile app, for current traffic and travel information.
