VDOT Urges Caution Though Mountainside Work Zone

STAUNTON – Part of Route 211 (Lee Highway) in Shenandoah County will be restricted to one lane in each direction June 30 – July 2, 2014, while crews replace a pipe under the roadway. The location is along a three-lane stretch of the road about 0.3 miles west of Route 674 (Run Away Lane) near New Market. The work zone is on a steep mountain grade, and motorists are advised to use caution through this area.

The pipe replacement is expected to be complete by 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 2. All work is weather permitting.
