From VDOT :

Lane closed due to damage

Motorists who use Lowesville Road (Route 778) in Amherst County are once again facing possible delays after the bridge over Piney River was struck by a motor vehicle and damaged for the second time in recent months.

A preliminary damage assessment is complete, one lane of the bridge closed and a temporary signal in place to assist motorists. Repairs are scheduled in the coming weeks.

In late-May, the bridge railing was damaged and traffic detoured while VDOT bridge crews made repairs.

Lowesville Road carries over 900 vehicles per day according to a 2014 count.

Motorists are encouraged to expect delays, slow down and be alert to the presence of the signal, crews and equipment.
