VDOT Postpones Ramp Opening
The Virginia Department of Transportation announced this afternoon that it has to postpone the opening of the new ramp at the Springfield interchange until next week. VDOT had hoped for a Wednesday opening, as you'll see in the posting below this one.
The cold weather is preventing the contractor from painting lane markings on the new ramp, which will carry traffic from the Capital Beltway's outer loop to Interstate 95 southbound. The temperature has to be at least 45 degrees for the markings to adhere to the pavement.
Let's hope for some sun to warm that pavement.
