The F.W. “Wakie” Howard Jr. Bridge on Route 155 (Courthouse Road) that connects Charles City and New Kent County is slated to reopen next week.

The bridge closed on June 1 for repairs to the bridge’s deck. The project was delayed for one year due to concerns from local business owners.

The bridge is tentatively set to open on Tuesday, Sept. 1 according to Virginia Department of Transportation representative Marshall Winn. He also commented that if it’s not open by then that it should be open by the end of the week.
