Route 2 Road Work To Resume
A hotly debated road construction project through Danville resumes this week, nearly two weeks after state officials called a halt to it.
That unusual action was taken so state transportation officials could work with contractors to come up with a better traffic management plan for the busy U.S. Route 2 corridor.
Officials say two-way traffic will be allowed from 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. -- during the busiest times of day. At other times, flaggers will be stopping traffic, and drivers can expect delays of up to 10 minutes.
The Agency of Transportation also is promising periodic meetings with area residents to hear any concerns.
