GEORGETOWN PIKE PAVING PROJECT STARTS AUGUST 10

Georgetown-Pike.jpgGREAT FALLS — The Virginia Department of Transportation will begin repaving eight miles of Georgetown Pike (Route 193) from I-495 to Springvale Road beginning Sunday, August 10, 2014 (weather permitting). The work will be performed at night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday. This work is expected to take about two months to complete, weather permitting.

Drivers are asked to consider taking alternate routes during the repaving operation on Route 193.

The road will be milled to a depth of four inches and replaced with 2.5 inches of intermediate asphalt and 1.5 inches of surface asphalt.  Some areas of the existing pavement will require deeper patching prior to the asphalt overlay.
