Beam delivery to affect traffic near bridge

Motorists can expect delays on U.S. 340-522 north of Front Royal today as crews bring long steel beams for the South Fork Bridge replacement project.

The Virginia Department of Transportation advises that the 100-foot beams are expected to be delivered between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Delivery will require intermittent, temporary closure of the southbound lanes on U.S. 340-522 between Interstate 66 and Va. 55 [West Strasburg Road], and intermittent, temporary closure of Strasburg Road between Forest Hill Drive and U.S. 340-522.
