The Lorton Road Improvement Project is moving forward with the construction of portions of Lorton Road. In order to perform the work, one of the detours outlined in the public meetings will soon be implemented. Lorton Road traffic, both directions, will be detoured onto newly widened Apple Orchard Road and Furnace Road before returning back onto existing Lorton Road. The detour will have directional signs posted to facilitate the movement of traffic. A new temporary signal will be activated at the intersection of Apple Orchard Road and Furnace Road to facilitate the flow of traffic through the intersection. The map below details the detour route of traffic. This detour will be placed into effect on Wednesday, December 17th at 9:00 am and will remain in place for approximately 9 months. The implementation of this detour is weather dependent and subject to change.
The map of the detour can be found on the attached flyer.
