VDOT resumes soil removal work on Afton

VDOT got an early start Monday morning on closing lanes on top of Afton Mt. for the soil removal work as part of the rock slide prevention project.  Lanes were shut down shortly after 6:30 for about an hour,  there was a break, and now more lane closings are promised at various times beginning now.  Watch for heavier traffic on 250 as a result.  VDOT is still hoping to get everything finished by Thursday night.
