The Virginia Department of Transportation has released its 2020 paving map, and it includes a modest number of projects in the Richmond Highway area.

In the Mount Vernon District, about 14 miles of streets will be paved. Those are primarily in the Westgrove, Marlan Forest and Villamay neighborhoods, with a few streets in Wellington and Waynewood also getting paved.

In the portion of Lee District nearest to Route 1, there will be about three miles of streets paved, primarily in Rose Hill.

An interactive map of the 2020 paving program can be viewed on VDOT’s website here.

There is no public schedule for the paving projects, but VDOT says that “No Parking” signs are generally put up about three days in advance.

There are no restriping projects scheduled for 2020 in either Lee District or Mount Vernon District.

A community meeting to discuss paving and restriping in Mount Vernon District was held earlier this month, prior the VDOT map getting released. The Lee District community meeting, scheduled for March 25, was cancelled due to social distancing precautions taken in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Citizens in Lee District can give feedback until April 14. See here for more details. The comment period for the Mount Vernon District is already closed.
