Crews will be inspecting the bridge between Monday and Friday.

There will be single-lane closures on the bridge between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Flagging crews will direct traffic to take turns crossing the bridge in the open travel lane.

The Norris Bridge spans the Rappahannock River, connecting Lancaster and Middlesex counties.
