Due to lighter traffic while people social distance and work from home during the COVID-19 situation, VDOT has permitted its work zones throughout the Commonwealth to extend their flagger operation hours in order to maximize work output and worker safety.

As our construction projects in Town remain on schedule, we are following similar protocol and will allow extended flagging operations in Town on Route 9, beginning as early as 8:30 a.m. and ending by 4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Weekend work is also permitted Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our communications message boards will reflect the extended hours for those traveling through the region.

Travel safely through Hillsboro and be safe wherever you are headed.
