Get ready drivers! We can expect some BIG road construction delays on the first phase of the James River widening and resurfacing project.  It looks like the first phase will be the bridge over the West Bypass. We can expect lane closures while crews will replace and repair the asphalt/concrete on the bridges.  This may take up to Thanksgiving time before its finished.

Watch for lower speed limits, and please slow down, while workers are out.  PLEASE pay attention!  Your inattention could cause the life of a worker!

The multiphase project will also include:
