VDOT Announces Lane Closures

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has suspended closures in observance of the Independence Day Holiday, starting at noon today, Wednesday, July 3, through noon Friday, July 5. 

The Virginia State Police report that during the 2011 July 4th holiday, 38 percent of the fatal crashes on the nation’s roads involved a driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 grams per deciliter or higher. In Virginia last year, 10 percent of the crashes during the July 4th holiday were alcohol-related.

Please drive carefully this July 4th holiday!
