CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — The Centerville Turnpike Bridge will be closed the weekend due to repairs.

Public Works Information Specialist Elizabeth Vaughn said there are issues at the bridge Friday morning that require its immediate closure.

The issue was discovered Friday morning when the bridge had to be hand-cranked for an opening, which can take upwards of 45 minutes, said Vaughn.

The bridge will reopen Sunday at 7 p.m.

Motorists can use Route 168 Bypass as an alternate route.
