Work continues on the Farmville Highway roundabout project in Charlotte County. Meanwhile, another roundabout is going up in Cumberland, this time at the intersection of Route 45 and Route 690. Also around the region, highway work requiring road/lane/structure closures is planned; however, work may be delayed/canceled due to weather or other issues. 

Crews will perform various activities throughout the district to include, but are not limited to bridge & guardrail maintenance, brush/tree/limb cutting, pothole/surface/shoulder work, surface treatment/paving operations, work orders, mowing, boom axing, drainage repairs/work and roadside cleanup.
