LANE CLOSURES TO CAUSE TRAFFIC DELAYS THURSDAY ON ROUTE 250 IN AUGUSTA COUNTY

STAUNTON – Traffic on Route 250 (Jefferson Highway) in Augusta County will be limited to a single lane each direction on Thursday, September 1. These traffic restrictions are for paving operations from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., just east of Staunton and the Interstate 81 interchange. Eastbound and westbound drivers on Route 250 can expect delays of up to 30 minutes, and may wish to consider an alternate route.

Contractors are re-paving Route 792 (Sangers Lane) just north of its intersection with Route 250 and Rowe Road. Single-lane traffic on Route 250 allows flagging crews to safely direct vehicles through the work zone. Motorists will have access to all homes and businesses in the area of these paving operations.

Traffic restrictions are scheduled to be lifted at 1 p.m. Thursday. All work is weather permitting.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org. For other assistance call the VDOT Customer Service Center, available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week. Citizens can dial 1-800-FOR- ROAD (1-800-367-7623) from anywhere in the state to report road hazards, ask transportation questions, or get information related to Virginia’s roads.
