In the Bridgewater area, motorists on Oakwood Drive could see flaggers directing traffic for construction work on temporary bridge being built over Cooks Creek. The estimated completion date for the project is Oct. 31.
In Harrisonburg, motorists might see construction crews on Stone Spring Road and Peach Grove Avenue as part of new road construction to extend the Southeast Connector in the county. There might be possible lane closures controlled by flaggers from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The estimated completion date for the project is November 2014.
While the previous items have been ongoing, VDOT has issued a new alert for the coming week.
