SPRINGFIELD — The Virginia Department of Transportation will begin repaving Franconia Road/Old Keene Mill Road (Route 644) from Elder Avenue to Rolling Road on Sunday, September 7, 2014. The work will occur five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. This work is expected to take about three months to complete, weather permitting.
Drivers are asked to consider taking alternate routes during the 3.5-mile repaving operation on Rt. 644.
In general, the roadway will be milled to a depth of 1.5 inches and replaced with 1.5 inches of surface asphalt. Some areas of the existing pavement will require deeper patching and trench widening prior to the asphalt overlay.
