Afton soil projects won’t cause any more total shutdowns of I-64

Here’s welcome news if you use Interstate 64 for trips over Afton Mountain.      VDOT says crews have made enough progress with their soil removal project to end the total shutdowns of I-64.     It says the final closure ended late Wednesday morning.     There will be single lane closures while the remaining soil gets pushed to the bottom of a slope and hauled away.     VDOT will close the right westbound lane at times between 7 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday for the next five weeks.
