Paving work to cause delays in city, Spotsylvania
Summer is winding down, but crews are still doing plenty of paving in the area. Here are a few areas to be on the lookout for this week:
- The William Street intersection with Sophia Street at the Chatham bridge. There has been paving in this area already, but work continues at the intersection. Crews will be painting the newly paved section around the intersection from 8 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday. The signal work will be done later, possibly in November, when the equipment arrives.
- Expect delays on William Street in the city between Douglas and Prince Edward streets Thursday. A milling and paving operation will lead to the left lane being closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- In Spotsylvania, crews will be milling and paving Falcon Drive. Expect delays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
