A bridge project at the Caroline and King and Queen county line will close the structure for nearly two weeks.

The State Route 625 bridge over Byrd’s Mill Pond will close on Monday and is set to reopen on Jan. 31, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. There will be detour signs posted in the area.

The bridge, built in 1958, is structurally deficient with a weight limit.

Crews will install new steel beams, the timber deck and a new railing.
