Fall Hill Avenue in Fredericksburg will close Feb. 12

The Fall Hill Avenue bridge will close as of Feb. 12 at 9 a.m., Fredericksburg Public Works Director Doug Fawcett announced this week.

Fredericksburg will begin sending out notices and posting signs starting the first week of January.

The bridge is expected to reopen Nov. 10.

During this time, motorists will have a 5.5-mile detour to get around construction.
