Virginia Division of Highways is constantly working to improve and maintain
West Virginia’s diverse network of roadways. Due to a growing number of roadway
improvement initiatives, the number of roadwork projects in the Mountain State
are increasing. The warm weather during the summer months is the optimal time
for roadwork, however, work zones are utilized year-round for a variety of
maintenance and improvement work. This summer, expect to see many work zones on
your commute to and from work or on your way to your long-anticipated summer
vacation. Work zones may cause delays, and you should plan ahead and find
another route if necessary. It is incredibly important that while driving
through work zones you slow down, put away distractions such as cell phones,
and pay attention. This is for your safety and the safety of the dedicated men
and women who may be working on the roadway just feet from your vehicle.
Remember, JUST SLOW DOWN. It’s everybody’s responsibility.
