The F.W. “Wakie” Howard Jr. Bridge on Route 155 (Courthouse Road) that connects Charles City and New Kent County will close on June 1 for repairs to the bridge’s deck.

The bridge was originally scheduled to be repaired in June 2019 before being delayed to October 2019 due to concerns from local business owners. That date was then pushed back to Spring of this year.

The closure of the bridge is estimated to last approximately four months until October 2020. Motorists traveling from New Kent to Charles City and vice-versa will be detoured onto Route 618 (Adkins Road) during that time.
