MOTORISTS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR SIGNAL WORK
STAUNTON – Traffic signal work will take place near Interstate 81 exit 307 in Frederick County. This location is at the I-81 southbound exit ramp and eastbound Route 277. The work will begin on Feb. 27 and will last several weeks. Motorists should be alert for this work zone and potential traffic delays which will occur later in the project.
The crews will relocate a signal pole and replace traffic signal heads. This work is part of a larger project that will widen a small portion of Route 277 to improve flow for tractor trailers turning left from the I-81 southbound exit ramp on to eastbound Route 277.
All work is weather permitting.
Richardson Wayland Electrical Co. L.L.C. of Roanoke is the contractor doing the signal work.
