Road work for the Dirt and Gravel Road Grant project on Vonada Gap Road will begin as soon as the weather cooperates and we get a few sunny, dry days. The project will involve raising the road one to three feet in order for water to properly be directed off of the road, keeping the road from water deterioration, as well as part of the Conservation Distric’s efforts to clean up the watershed. Temporary road closures will occur on Vonada Gap Road approximately a mile and a half from the intersection with Lower George’s Valley Road up to the Lingle Valley Road intersection. Residents who use that stretch of Vonada Gap should plan on using Lingle Valley Road to Penns Creek Road or Decker Valley out to Rt. 322 during the road closures. Trucks hauling stone for the project will be coming up the lower portion of Vonada Gap Road, so use caution when traveling that section.
The road closures will be posted on the website as Urgent Alerts. If you have not already done so, sign up for E-Alerts to be notified via email when the alerts are posted.
