INTERSTATE 95 RAMP PAVING PROJECT TO BEGIN IN AUGUST
Motorists should be aware of work zone and detours
HAMPTON ROADS– Contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin paving operations on Interstate 95 entrance and exit ramps that will result in ramp and single lane closures beginning the week of August 4, 2013.
Crews will pave ten I-95 interchanges between State Route 629, Skippers (Exit 4) in Greensville County to State Route 602, Stony Creek (Exit 33) in Sussex County. A total of forty-one exit and entrance ramps will be repaved for both the north- and southbound direction as a part of this project.
Work zones will not be active during rush hours from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or on weekends from 5:30 a.m. on Saturday to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. All other times, motorists should expect construction activities in this area and plan for increased travel times.
Branscome Incorporated based out of Williamsburg, Virginia has been contracted with VDOT for the milling, paving, and pavement marking of Interstate 95 interchanges for a total of $2,044,532. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2013.
While driving through the work zone, motorists should stay alert for additional traffic congestion, detours and flagging crews. Variable message signs will be utilized to help inform motorists of impacted areas and will be accompanied by detour signs for motorists to follow. Motorists are encouraged to drive cautiously.
