SATURDAY LINE PAINTING OPERATION PLANNED IN
Motorists should be alert to slow moving vehicles and wet paint on the pavement

FREDERICKSBURG – On Saturday, June 1, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractor will be painting pavement lines on several secondary routes in King George County.

Motorists may experience minor delays as they approach this mobile work zone. If congestion develops, the contractor will periodically clear the work zone to allow vehicles to clear.

VDOT encourages motorists to avoid passing equipment in this painting work zone.  

A slow-moving vehicle will be applying wet paint to the pavement. Passing this equipment before work is completed will cause wet paint to adhere to vehicles and comprise the quality of the pavement marking. The paint will dry shortly after it is applied to the pavement by the drying vehicle, which restores a safe passing environment for motorists.

Crews will be working on the following routes between 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

  • Route 607 (Port Conway Road)
  • Route 610 (Powhatan Road)
  • Route 623 (Jersey Road)
  • Route 628 (Stoney Knoll Road)
  • Route 629 (Round Hill Road)

 

Motorists can find real-time information about work zones, traffic incidents and congestion on VDOT’s 24-hour travel information website, www.511Virginia.org. 511Virginia is also available by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
