VDOT HOT SPOTS August 4-10


Travelers can expect daytime delays next week on Route 206 (Dahlgren Road) between Route 301 and Route 644 (Potts Lane) in King George County for a combined paving and safety project.

Route 206 will be reduced to a single lane at the following dates, times and location:

Between Route 644 (Potts Lane) and Route 301

Monday, Aug. 5 – Friday, Aug. 9

  • 9 a.m. 9 p.m.

Crews will direct one-way, alternating traffic through the work zone.

Project Background

A combined safety and paving project in King George began on Wednesday, July 10 to deliver a smoother travel surface on several high-volume roads, and reduce the risk of crashes at spot locations by adding centerline rumble strips and widening the road shoulders.

Throughout the project, work is scheduled to occur on Route 3, Route 206 (Dahlgren Road), Route 218 (Caledon Road), Route 614 (Potomac Drive), Route 624 (Owens Drive) and Route 1150 (Commerce Drive). Lee Hy Paving Corp. is the contactor for this project, which has an estimated total cost of $5 million.

Crews are working along one route at a time. This ensures that alternate primary routes will remain open to drivers who wish to avoid the work zone.

Message boards are being posted in advance to notify motorists of the work locations, dates and times. Boards will be moved as crews progress from one route to the next.
