Rick  Slusser, a rod buster from Williamsburg, stands along the north end of the U.S. 340-522 bridge under construction in Front Royal on Wednesday. Virginia Department of Transportation spokesman Ken Slack said Wednesday the project remains on schedule for completion in late 2017. Crews are expected to lay the last steel beams in the next couple of weeks, install a deck pan and start pouring concrete for the deck on the new section this summer, Slack said. VDOT will open the new bridge over the South Fork of the Shenandoah River to traffic in phases by the end of the year and crews will begin dismantling the old bridge and construct the rest of the new crossing.
