V-Dot crews are fixing the steel
cables inside the bridge that were
damaged during the recent accident.


They're also replacing some of the
concrete on the beam of the bridge.


This isn't the first time the Liberty
Road overpass has needed repairs.


In fact, the bridge has been hit six
times in the last five years.


As a result, the bridge is considered
structurally deficient.


Even so, V-Dot insists the bridge is
safe but admits it will eventually need
long term repairs.


However, that's easier said than
done.

Natasha, the state has also thought
about adding more signage to better
warn drivers about the height of the
bridge but there are no definite plans
at this time.



NATASHA QUESTION:


Justin, just wondering, how much are
these repairs costing?



JUSTIN ANSWER:


Natasha, it's about 55-thousand
dollars but keep in mind tax payers are
not footing the bill. The state is
recouping the costs from the insurance
company of the driver who hit this
bridge.

Issues Republican leaders believe


will help them keep their seats in the
legislature.


Still, it's likely Virginians
would notice more change in the Senate
if Republicans retain control rather
than if Democrats take over.


That's because in several key
elections conservative Republicans are
fighting to win seats that have been
held by more moderate Republicans for
years... Republicans who often sided
with Democrat Governor Tim Kaine.

drop and the atmosphere becomes more
stable, shower chances will diminish. A
cold front is forecast to cross the
area Thursday, and will bring some
changes to the overall warm pattern.
Clouds will increase Thursday with a
few showers during the afternoon and
evening. Widespread rain won't be the
main feature along the front, as most
of the steady moisture stays north of

expect rapid clearing for Friday and

And that's why Evelyn believes

But a new study of 1-thousand

Researchers didn't test for
autism, instead, for neuropsychological
damage.


And the scientists found the
vaccines do 'not' have a significant

assistants at FSU have resigned and 23
Florida State University athletes have
been implicated in cheating on tests
given over the Internet. Apparently a
tutor sat with the athletes while they
took tests and supplied them correct
answers.


School officials say the athletes
represent nine sports and that 17 of
the students are on scholarship or have
been at some time. The students could
face punishment from the university and


the NCAA, including the loss of
eligibility and scholarships.


However, due to federal
confidentiality restrictions officials
cannot identify the students
