This paving work is part of a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project to add nearly 1,000 new commuter parking spaces to the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot.
VDOT is requiring the contractor to enhance these segments of Staffordboro Boulevard with roller-compacted concrete as a base layer, where construction vehicles will be traveling during the project.
Construction of the $12.9 million improvement project is scheduled to take 16 months, and will open to users in October 2014.
Real-time listings of travel times, work zones, and traffic incidents in Virginia are available on VDOT’s 24-hour traffic information website, www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also access 511Virginia by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
