MADISON-MARSHALL PROJECT

The first phase of the Madison-Marshall Improvements Project will include the closure of the intersection to through traffic. Northbound and Southbound traffic on Madison St and Foxcroft Rd that would typically go through the intersection will be directed to detour to Liberty St between Marshall and Washington (Rt. 50). Likewise, Eastbound and Westbound traffic on Marshall St that would typically go through the intersection will also be directed to detour.

Large electronic message signs (as required by VDOT) alerting traffic to a new pattern have been installed on Washington St near Pendleton and Hamilton Streets. Directional signs will be placed and unveiled when the detour goes into effect. THIS DETOUR WILL TAKE EFFECT MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2014
