OVERNIGHT LANE CLOSURES APRIL 18-22 FOR PAVING ON ROUTE 37 IN FREDERICK COUNTY

STAUNTON – Paving operations will require overnight lane closures April 18-22 on Route 37 northbound and southbound in Frederick County. This work zone extends from the Interstate 81 exit 310 (Kernstown) interchange to the intersection with Route 642 and 847 (Tasker Road and Hillandale Drive).

 

Alternating lane closures on Route 37 will take place Tuesday through Friday nights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following mornings. The speed limit on Route 37 through the work zone is 35 miles an hour. Virginia State Police will assist with traffic control. All work is weather permitting.

 

The Route 37 paving is part of the I-81 exit 310 reconstruction project, which is designed to alleviate I-81 mainline traffic backups from the exit ramps. General Excavation Inc. (GEI) of Warrenton, Va. was awarded a construction contract valued at nearly $25 million. The Virginia Department of Transportation estimates a summer 2017 completion.
