[ARCHIVED] Full Closure Scheduled on Portion of Devon Road for Longhill Road Widening Project

Devon Road Closure and Detour map

JAMES CITY COUNTY – Starting as early as June 29, following the morning rush hour, contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin the installation of sewer line beneath Devon Road, as part of the Longhill Road Widening Project in James City County. To expedite this work and reduce the overall duration of traffic impacts, a full consecutive closure will be in place for approximately two weeks, weather permitting, on Devon Road at the Windsor Forest neighborhood entrance, between Longhill Road and Wetherburn Lane.

Throughout the duration of the underground utility work, a signed detour will be in place directing motorists traveling along Longhill Road and Devon Road to use Berkshire Road and Buford Road as an alternate route and entrance to Windsor Forest.

This work is dependent upon weather conditions; therefore, the schedule and duration of the work are subject to change.
