Valee Road Bridge Replacement Project to Begin

Chipley Work activities will begin the week of Monday, Feb. 4 to replace the bridge on Valee Road over Blue Creek in Holmes County. The $1.1 million bridge replacement project also includes new guardrail, minor drainage improvements, sodding, and new pavement markings.  During construction Valee Road will be closed and traffic detoured via State Road 81 (Samson Highway), Coy Commander Road, and U.S. 90.  The project is anticipated to be complete late 2019. 

All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to use caution when traveling in a work zone and to watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the roadway.
