Verona Road update

Construction crews began work again on the Verona Road project late last month. Traffic is expected to shift to the east side of the road later this spring as crews work on the west side, including the interchange ramps between Williamsburg Way and County Hwy. PD.

Good morning,

Construction crews continue to make great progress on Verona Road (US 18/151), between Williamsburg Way and County PD/McKee Road, in Fitchburg. Next week, concrete paving operations will begin near Williamsburg Way. Later this year, Verona Road traffic will travel on those new lanes under Williamsburg Way and over County PD.

Watch the narrated animation video of the Verona Road improvements in Fitchburg. It's a great visual to understand what Verona Road will look like later this year and County PD/McKee Road in 2020.

For everyone's safety, please continue to focus on the road ahead, slow down, don't tailgate and eliminate distractions when driving.

Forward this email to family, friends and co-workers who travel on Verona Road and County PD in Fitchburg, and encourage them to sign up for Verona Road Project email updates!
