JEFFERSON ST/OLD CAROLINA RD BRIDGE MEETING NEXT WEEK
Public invited to learn about project August 12 at Haymarket Town Hall

HAYMARKET—The Virginia Department of Transportation invites drivers and residents to meet with VDOT and Shirley Contracting staff about the upcoming closure of Jefferson Street/Old Carolina Road over Interstate 66 at a “pardon our dust” meeting, 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at the Haymarket Town Hall, 15000 Washington Street.

Beginning mid-September 2014, VDOT will be closing the bridge to begin demolition as part of the ongoing project to widen I-66 from Haymarket to Gainesville. The demolition work will require some nighttime operations and lane closures, and is anticipated to take six to eight weeks to complete, weather permitting. The bridge is located 0.4 miles east of the I-66/Route 15 interchange (Exit 40).

During this closure, traffic will be detoured onto Heathcote Boulevard, Catharpin Road and Washington Street.
