BRIEF NIGHTTIME TRAFFIC DELAYS IN WARREN COUNTY FOR DELIVERY OF ROUTE 340/522 BRIDGE BEAMS

STAUNTON – Drivers in the Front Royal area of Warren County can expect traffic delays two nights a week for up to 30 minutes at a time during bridge-beam deliveries. These delays are scheduled to affect traffic at the intersection of Route 340/522 (Shenandoah Avenue) and Route 55 (Strasburg Road) through March 2017.

Tractor trailers are delivering steel beams up to 142 feet long to the construction site of the Shenandoah River South Fork bridge replacement. The deliveries are scheduled to arrive in the Front Royal area after 7 p.m. to avoid peak commuter traffic. Law enforcement will assist with traffic control.

All work is weather permitting, and the delivery schedule is subject to change.

Contractors are replacing the Shenandoah River South Fork bridge and reconfiguring the intersection of Route 340/522 and Route 55. Details on the project, which is scheduled for final completion in late 2017, are available here.

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

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org. For other assistance call the VDOT Customer Service Center, available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week. Citizens can dial 1-800-FOR- ROAD (1-800-367-7623) from anywhere in the state to report road hazards, ask transportation questions, or get information related to Virginia’s roads.
