All work at the intersection will be completed on February 17, 2021.

Paving is underway to apply the final layer of asphalt across a portion of the intersection. Paving will continue through Friday, Jan. 15, with lane closures and flagging between 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Monday, Jan. 18 through Friday, Jan. 22, VDOT anticipates there will be periodic single lane closures again between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. as crews prepare to install new traffic signal equipment at the intersection the following week. Crews will be placing signs, pedestal poles, and working on other electrical items.

The most impactful work of the project will occur on Monday, Jan. 25 through Friday, Jan. 29, weather permitting. Detailed times to come.

Traffic will always be able to pass through the intersection, at all times, but a flagging crew (with law enforcement assistance) will direct traffic 24 hours a day over several days this week.

After Jan. 29, crews anticipate spending the first week of February completing final paving and pavement marking work, which again will require daytime lane closures. Details to come.

After Feb. 5, crews are expected to spend the final two weeks finishing punch list items and work zone cleanup.

The project completion date is expected to be Feb. 17.

Plan for extra time while traveling through the Route 14 / Main Street intersection.

To avoid delays when driving to a destination on Main Street use the following alternate route:

From the South of Main Street – take Route 17N to Belroi Road and make a right. Proceed to the stop sign and turn right onto Main Street.
