VDOT planning several paving projects in county

The Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) approved seven contracts with a total value of $67.7 million for Richmond District construction and maintenance recently, including $18.5 million to resurface select primary routes in Henrico and four other counties. That work will take place between now and December.

A $3.3-million project for concrete patching on approximately seven miles of I-295 in Henrico (just north of the Varina-Enon bridge) will continue through October and involve several weekday single-lane closures and weeknight double-lane closures.

Additional projects planned this spring in the county include new pavement on Brook Road, New Market Road, Charles City Road and Pouncey Tract Road, as well as new pavement on a number of secondary routes.

In total, VDOT will spend $84 million to pave and resurface more than 1,870 lane miles of roads in the 14-county Richmond District. For details, visit http://www.VirginiaDOT.org.
