Virginia Department Of Transportation Lifting Lane Closures Set To End

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A suspension of temporary highway lane closures in Virginia is set to end Wednesday afternoon.
 
The Virginia Department of Transportation had lifted lane closures in temporary work zones over the Christmas holiday to help holiday travelers reach their destinations.
 
Officials say the lane closures will again be lifted from noon Dec. 31 to noon Jan. 2 for the New Year.
 
Travelers can check road conditions and traffic incidents on VDOT's travel information website, ww.511Virginia.org, or the mobile version for handheld devices, mobile511virginia.org. The service also can be accessed by telephone calling 511.
 
Officials are encouraging Virginians to plan for a safe trip by staring well-rested, avoiding distractions, wearing your seat belt and obeying the speed limit and other traffic safety laws.
