As part of the Route 50 widening project motorists traveling on westbound Route 50 can expect major delays from 7 p.m., Wednesday, November 6th until 5 a.m.,Thursday, November 7th.

Only one lane will be open on westbound Route 50 between Route 28 and Avion Parkway, and the ramp from southbound Route 28 to westbound Route 50 will be closed.  The closure is due to the shifting of the traffic lanes to the right as part of the Route 50 widening project.  The detour for the ramp closure will be Route 28 south to Willard Road to Stonecroft Boulevard to westbound Route 50.

Motorists should consider alternate routes to avoid delays.
