Great Bridge bridge closing Wednesday night for more repairs

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- There is more work to be done on Chesapeake's Great Bridge bridge.

The city's Department of Public Works said the Battlefield Boulevard bridge will close overnight on Wednesday, June 28 from 9 p.m. to the following 5 a.m.

Lightning struck the bridge two weeks ago, which forced it to be manually operated for extended lifts for several days.  The city announced repairs had been completed late last week and the bridge would resume a normal lift schedule, but now additional adjustments and repair work is needed due to that lightning strike.

Motorists can use Route 168 Bypass as an alternate route while the bridge is closed.
