PAVING WORK PLANNED ON EASTBOUND ROUTE 360
Single lane closures scheduled during daytime hours in Essex County for July and August
FREDERICKSBURG – Nearly 7 miles of pavement in the eastbound lanes of Route 360 in Essex County will be milled and paved in July and August to deliver an improved travel surface for motorists.
Paving work will begin the week of Monday, July 25. A single lane of eastbound Route 360 will be closed between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays over 4 to 6 weeks.
Work crews will mill the pavement 4 inches below the existing surface. New asphalt will then immediately be applied to the milled roadway. An estimated 24,000 tons of new asphalt will be used during the project.
Motorists should be alert for temporary traffic patterns and temporary lane markings in the work zone, which will be mobile as work progresses east from the Essex County and King and Queen County line to just west of the intersection with Route 17 at Brays Fork.
The project contract was awarded to Basic Construction Company.
