The Virginia Department of Transportation announced significant road work to begin in Shenandoah County on May 1st.

Crews will begin work on Route 211 (East Lee Highway) on May 1st with operations expected to last 30 days.

VDOT expects the milling and paving operation to create significant travel delays for the duration of the project.

The multi-phase operation will allow only one travel lane at a time.

The single travel lane will serve both east and westbound traffic along the three lane, steep mountain road between New Market and Page County.

Pilot trucks will guide traffic Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm until the work is completed.

Route 211 motorists can expect delays of 20 min at a time during work hours.

During non-work hours on weekdays, motorists should be aware of areas of uneven pavement.

Crews hope to level those areas before each weekend.
