ROUTE 17 PAVING PROJECT NOW COMPLETE
Crews complete project on time, on budget and to VDOT specifications

ISLE OF WIGHT– Contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) completed the rebuild of Route 17, from the James River Bridge to the Crittenden Bridge/Suffolk Line, on June 30, 2013. In late April, the contractor began placing the final asphalt surface in the northbound lanes followed by surfacing of the southbound lanes. Crews recently finalized placing permanent pavement markings, guardrail upgrades, and other incidentals.

VDOT would like to thank the public for their understanding and patience throughout this paving process. Virginia Paving of Alexandria, Virginia was awarded the contract totaling $5.8 million to perform the paving operations in May 2012.

The Hampton Roads District encompasses nine counties and 11 cities, from Greensville County in the west to James City County in the north to Accomack County in the northeast and the city of Virginia Beach in the southeast. The Hampton Roads District oversees maintenance and construction activities on state-maintained routes for more than 730 miles of primary roads, almost 4,000 miles of secondary roads and more than 4,700 miles of urban roads.
