CHARLES CITY/PRINCE GEORGE– The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has planned a full weekend closure of the Benjamin Harrison Bridge on Jordan Point Road (Route 156)/Roxbury Road (Route 106) in Charles City and Prince George counties for a lifting rope replacement project.

The following detour will be in place during the overnight closures:
Northbound Route 156/106 - Take Jordan Point Road (Route 156) south to Route 10 west to I-295 north to Route 5 (Exit 22A) east back to Route 156/106.
