WINCHESTER — Crews are expected to begin work tonight on repairs to one of the area’s most-used bridges.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has scheduled maintenance for the Millwood Pike (U.S. 17/50) bridge over Interstate 81 beginning at 8 p.m. today. The bridge is in Frederick County just outside the city limits.

The work is slated to be done Monday through Thursday nights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. through the end of the month. At least one lane of traffic and possibly more is expected to be closed during maintenance periods.

Depending on the amount of work and weather, crews also might work some Sunday nights.

No further information on the project was immediately available.
