Work to replace the Mattox Creek bridge south of Colonial Beach is about to start.

On Tuesday [June 24, 2014], crews will start moving in equipment, which will be stored on State Route 638 at State Route 205. The section of Route 638 near the project will remain closed throughout the project.

Actual work on the bridge won’t start until after July 4.

The $8.1 million project will take two years to complete, so residents who use State Route 205 (James Monroe Highway) will have to get used to delays.
