ROUTE 3 PAVING WORK BEGINS IN KING GEORGE
Motorists may experience travel delays from April 29-May 10 due to single lane closures
FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists on Route 3 in King George may experience travel delays east of Route 301 next week during daytime hours.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractor are paving a 7-mile section of Route 3 between Route 301 and the Westmoreland County line.
From Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 10, a single lane of Route 3 will be closed in a mobile work zone for trench work, which precedes paving.
The lane closure will be in place from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day.
A flagging crew and pilot vehicle will direct vehicles through the work zone. Motorists are asked to reduce their speed, stay alert, and follow the direction of the flagging crews.
Additional single lane closures on Route 3 will be scheduled and announced as this project progresses.
Motorists can find real-time information about work zones, traffic incidents and congestion on VDOT’s 24-hour travel information website, www.511Virginia.org. 511Virginia is also available by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
