BRIDGE PROJECTS BRING TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGE TO ROUTE 340 IN PAGE COUNTY

STAUNTON – A new traffic pattern will affect drivers using Route 340 (Stonewall Jackson Memorial Highway) near the Compton Creek and Norfolk Southern bridge projects in Page County.

Beginning Monday, July 1, 2013, traffic will be routed onto a new section of roadway from 0.1 mile south of Route 663 (Island Ford Road) to 0.16 mile south of Route 662 (Compton Hollow Road).

This traffic shift results from the new alignment of Route 340 due to the construction of new bridges over Compton Creek and the Norfolk Southern railway. The projects are expected to be complete this fall. All work is weather permitting.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.
