Project Summary: This project will complete an earlier project, originally designed to lower the tunnel floor, repair the tunnel liner, and rebuild four half viaducts. The original project was partially completed in 2012 and 2013.
This project will complete construction of two half viaducts and other remaining items from the original project, along with newly added items.

Construction is planned during 2015 with the final paving of the tunnel approaches scheduled for 2016.
Concrete barrier has been placed along centerline and traffic is restricted to a single travel lane, controlled by 24 hr. flagging and a pilot car for the remainder of the project.

OR126: Chickahominy Cr to Poterf Cr Sec.
(OR126: MP 32.5 to 37.5)
Contract amount: $1.67M
Project Summary: This project will pave from MP 32.55 to MP 37.32 in the vicinity of Walton. Guardrail, rumble strips and signing will also be addressed through this section.
Remarks:   Localized pavement repairs will conclude this week and some sections of grinding and pavement inlay will begin. For the duration of the project, work will take place Sunday night through Thursday night, including day time work.   Lane closures for work done during day time hours will be less than 20 minutes and usually of much shorter duration due to relatively short lane closure lengths. Lane closures for the production paving will predominately take place from 7PM to 7AM Sunday through Thursday, when delays may be up to 20 minutes, with longer lane closure lengths.
