County Bridge Rd creekside

A creek-side glimpse of Cat Point Creek at the County Bridge Rd. project site earlier this year.

People tracking the progress of the County Bridge Road project may have noticed what appears to be a standstill. Work has been suspended and won’t resume until July due to environmental restrictions that bar VDOT from creating disturbance in Cat Point Creek.

The time-of-year restriction that’s underway is designed to protect anadromous fish populations, which in Virginia, include species like herring, American shad, striped bass, and Atlantic sturgeon, noted VDOT communications manager Kelly Hannon.
