Lane Finally Reopens on Westbound Route 50

The lefthand lane on westbound Route 50 near the Courthouse Road exit has finally reopened, after more than a year of utility work.

The lane closure lasted about 10 months longer than originally anticipated. The utility work was performed in preparation for VDOT’s Courthouse interchange project, which is expected to get underway this month.

A tipster says the jersey walls separating the two righthand lanes of westbound Route 50 from the newly-paved lefthand lane were removed during the day on Friday.

    Awesome. It’s a shame it will only last a little while as the new construction project will make this area another mess for the next few years.

      Wasn’t a county project. It was VDOT. But please, don’t let facts get in the way . . .

      In all fairness it’s difficult to stay on track as apparently work can only be completed on this project from the hours of 10am – 2pm. Can’t wait for the next county project – I really don’t like that 2 mile stretch of 50 to take less than 25 minutes on my evening commute.

      Horray for more road work!
