STAUNTON – Contractors are repaving and making shoulder improvements on Route 250 (Three Notch Mountain Highway) in Augusta County from May 4 – 12, 2017. During a portion of this project, the on- and off-ramps at Interstate 64 exit 99 (Afton/Waynesboro) will be closed and a detour will be in place.

 

Paving is scheduled to take place weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The work began today (Thursday, May 4) on Route 250 at the Waynesboro eastern city limits and will continue east up Afton Mountain.

 

The operation is expected to reach the I-64 interchange on Tuesday, May 9, and be complete on Friday, May 12. All work is weather permitting.
