STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation will begin construction to upgrade a traffic signal the week of June 22.

The signal construction is located at Route 340/522 (Shenandoah Avenue) and the Interstate 66 eastbound and westbound ramps in Warren County. The project is an upgrade of two existing span wire signals to standard regional signals. Traffic delays are not expected and activities that may impact traffic flow will be performed during non-peak times.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution in the area of the signal construction.

Completion of the signal construction is anticipated for mid-August. All work is weather permitting.
