Interesting Facebook post about the Chatham Bridge from our friends at the Stafford Museum and Cultural Center. ... See MoreSee Less
Thursday’s Free Lance Star newspaper said members of Fredericksburg’s City Council voted to close down Chatham Bridge for repair in 2021. VDOT said the bridge would be closed for 16 to 19 months. The 76 –year-old bridge is structurally deficient. The current bridge was built in 1940-1941 and replaced one which was washed out in the flood of 1937. The picture of this bridge is shown in an early 1900 photo from the Central ;Rappahannock Regional Heritage Center.
