STAUNTON – The new Route 624 (Morgan Ford Road) bridge over the Shenandoah River in Warren County is scheduled to open Monday, January 22nd.
Motorists can expect single-lane traffic and flagging operations as needed during the final months of the project. Work will generally occur Monday thru Friday. Motorists should plan for potential delays and remain alert as they travel through the work zone.
