ROUTE 30 PAVEMENT IMPROVEMENT PROJECT BEGINS NEXT WEEK
Recycled pavement will create a smoother travel surface on Rt. 30 in King William, West Point

FREDERICKSBURG—Construction will begin next week on a pavement improvement project along 4.4 miles of Route 30 in King William County, with additional paving planned in the town of West Point.

 

The project will improve the pavement’s condition and the quality of the ride for motorists on a segment of Route 30 that is heavily used by industry and area residents traveling to Route 301, 360, and Interstate 95.

 

Starting next week, workers will mill and remove the top 2 inches of the road’s surface on Route 30 between Route 360 and Enfield Road. The remaining asphalt and aggregate base will then be recycled in place, strengthened, and stabilized with cement.  The roadway will then have a temporary chip seal placed prior to final paving with a new asphalt surface layer.

 

A full depth reclamation project is generally 25 percent to 50 percent less costly than new construction, and preserves natural resources for use at another location.

 

This project’s funding was obtained using federal bonus obligation dollars allocated to Virginia.

 

Traffic Impacts

 

Starting on Thursday, August 21, motorists can expect single-lane closures on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Route 30 between Route 360 and Route 610 (Enfield Road).

 

The work zone will be mobile, and will change locations as work advances. Work is expected to begin near Enfield Road and move east toward Route 360.

 

Motorists will be directed through the work zone by a flagging crew. Stay alert for workers and equipment, temporary traffic patterns, and a rough driving surface.

 

Construction is expected to be underway for approximately two months at the King William location. Additional work dates will be scheduled and announced for milling and paving on Route 30 in West Point.
