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 afternoon,

Despite the spooky snowfall on Halloween, crews continue to work through the conditions in preparation to shift Verona Road (US 18/151) traffic onto the new lanes with travel under Williamsburg Way and over County PD in Fitchburg. It is important to note this shift is weather and work operation dependent, and subject to change. Further details on dates/times of the traffic shift will be shared via this email distribution list, Verona Road Project website and project Facebook page.

Watch the narrated animation video of the Verona Road improvements in Fitchburg. It's a great visual to understand how to navigate the future lanes of Verona Road and the interchange ramps.

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!
