VDOT Lifts Lane Restrictions for Memorial Day Weekend Travel

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has lifted lane restrictions on interstates, primary routes and other major highways in preparation for Memorial Day holiday weekend travel.

“While this weekend historically marks the start of the busy summer travel season, the traveling public should be assured that public safety is VDOT’s primary focus,” said Greg Whirley, acting VDOT commissioner. “Employees assigned to critical operations and emergency response will be on duty and prepared to respond, if necessary.”

In addition, VDOT will open travel lanes temporarily closed because of construction or maintenance work beginning at noon tomorrow Friday, May 28, through noon Tuesday, June 1, for holiday travelers.

Construction zones with concrete barriers and orange barrels will remain in place.
