Crews implemented a traffic shift on I-264 east near Topgolf (between the Newtown Road and Witchduck Road exits) in mid-February, which allows crews to work safely in the median while maintaining all lanes of traffic in this location.
Motorists are now driving on a temporary new alignment, about 25 feet to the right, which will be in place through summer 2020.
In an effort to improve clarity throughout the traffic shift, VDOT has taken the following measures:
- Further eradication of previous pavement markings;
- Demarcation of lanes using solid white tape; and
- Addition of reflective pavement markings for motorists driving at night.
VDOT personnel will continue to drive through this work zone at various times and weather conditions to evaluate traffic configurations and markings to optimize safety for motorists and crews working along the road.
