Community Meeting Held March 13; Comment Period Closed April 2, 2018
VDOT and FCDOT held a public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes in the Mason District on Tuesday, March 13, 7 p.m., in the Mason District Governmental Center. Community members were invited to give feedback on general traffic safety concerns regarding roads scheduled for paving and the proposed striping changes either at the meeting or by submitting comments online.
Please note that no additional roads can be added to the paving schedule at this time; any suggestions for new paving and restriping changes will be saved for future planning.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has scheduled several roads in the Mason District for paving in 2018. The paving will take place starting in April and concluding in November 2018. Exact work dates are available about ten days prior to work beginning, as contractors set schedules based on personnel and equipment availability. In subdivisions, "no parking" signs with precise date information will be posted at least three business days prior to work starting. Residents can expect work vehicles in their neighborhood during the project. Motorists are asked to be alert to temporary traffic patterns. Cars, basketball hoops or garbage cans may need to be temporarily relocated while work is under way. Work hours are usually limited to outside of rush hours. Crews typically work on neighborhood streets weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On other roads such as interstates and some primaries, work may occur overnight.
See VDOT’s interactive paving map for more information on road specific project status and contact information, which is updated weekly during the paving season.
