The citizen information meeting will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, at the Stuarts Draft Rescue Squad building, 10 Manor Road, Stuarts Draft, Virginia 24477.

Citizens can come in during the meeting hours and discuss the project schedule and benefits, as well as the potential impacts for motorists and residents along Route 610 between Route 912 (Hodge Street) and Campbell Lane.
