Plans for Clarkton Bridge aired / September 14, 2017

Members of the public are invited to a VDOT presentation on the future of Clarkton Bridge Thursday, Sept. 21 at Brookneal Elementary School, 133 Charlotte Street, Brookneal. VDOT officials will present plans for the dismantling and removal of the closed truss spans crossing the Staunton River at the Halifax/Charlotte county line. The department also will present future interpretive plans on the history of the Route 620 span, known as Clarkton Bridge.

From 5-7 p.m., the public can view displays showing the history of the structure, the current deteriorated bridge conditions, and considerations given to the future treatment of the bridge.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and a group of stakeholders representing the counties of Charlotte and Halifax, as well as the Town of Halifax, Preservation Virginia, the former Clarkton Alliance, the Department of Historic Resources and other individuals and groups have met several times in the last year to evaluate options for the structure’s future and opportunities to recognize the significance of the bridge once it has been removed.

Additional information about the project and event is available by contacting Kenneth Martin, Halifax Residency Administrator at 434-476-6471 or Scot Shippee, P.E., Dillwyn Resident Engineer at 434-983-2017.
