Old Bridge Road Work Done by Year’s End?
LAKE RIDGE, Va. – The project to improve Old Bridge Road at Harbor Drive in Lake Ridge will be completed faster than originally planned.
Prince William Occoquan District Supervisor Mike May states the Virginia Department of Transportation could complete the work by the end of the year – not in April as was scheduled.
Our office has recently received a bit of good news regarding the work going on at the intersection of Old Bridge Road and Harbor Drive and I wanted to take a moment to share it with you. VDOT reports that their project contractor has found a way to complete work on the westbound improvements much faster than originally anticipated.
Although VDOT estimated that this portion of the work would be completed by April of 2013, it now looks like the majority of the work will be done by the end of this year (weather pending of course). There will still be some miscellaneous work to be completed such as final surface pavement, pavement markings, signal work, and landscaping and this will continue thru April. However, these remaining operations will be done with temporary lane closures implemented at non peak hours when and if needed.
Hopefully, advancing the restoration of the west bound lanes will help mitigate the afternoon traffic congestion issues.
