I-64 LANE CLOSURES SET FOR APRIL 27-28 IN AUGUSTA COUNTY
Bridge Work at Exit 91 for Two Nights

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation will have overnight lane closures on April 27 and 28 along Interstate 64 between mile markers 87 and 94 in Augusta County. This will allow installation of a bridge overhang at exit 91 in the Fishersville area.

 

On the night of Sunday, April 27 the westbound right lane will close at 7 p.m. When work over the right lane is complete, the closure will shift to the left lane. Both travel lanes will reopen by 7 a.m.

On the following night, Monday April 28, the eastbound right lane will close at 7 p.m. When work over the right lane is complete, the closure will shift to the left lane. Both travel lanes will reopen by 7 a.m.

All work is weather permitting, and is part of the reconstruction of Route 285 (Tinkling Spring Road) at exit 91. The two-year project will improve safety and traffic flow along Route 285 in Augusta County.

 

The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded Shirley Contracting a $21 million design-build contract in September 2012. Final completion of the project is scheduled for August 2015.
