ISLE OF WIGHT – The James River Bridge Grid Replacement Deck work scheduled for this weekend, Friday, Oct. 26, through Monday, Oct. 29, has been cancelled due to the weather forecast calling for tropical storm winds and heavy rain.

Originally, crews were going to work this weekend and attempt to complete some grid deck replacement activities. However, with the uncertainty of the forecast and the impending arrival of Hurricane Sandy, crews have decided to cancel all work for this weekend. 

The work scheduled for this weekend was a continuation of the ongoing work to replace the southbound grid deck. VDOT crews will reschedule the work for the weekend of Nov. 2, 2012.

At least six additional weekend lane closures will be required to complete all of the bridge work, and the weekend, single-lane closures will continue through mid-December.
