ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — A pedestrian improvement project on Williamson Road, just south of the Peters Creek Road intersection, is set to begin on Monday.

Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, starting on Monday, May 10.

The southbound lane of Williamson Road will be closed and traffic will be shifted into the center turn lane. The northbound lane will remain open, according to VDOT.

Left turns will not be permitted into all entrances from both southbound and northbound lanes within the work zone on Williamson Road.

This pattern will remain in place through the first two phases of the project.

During the third phase of the project, work will be performed with lane closures in place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning.

Shoulder closures will be in place throughout the project with message boards to alert drivers.

The project is slated to be completed at the end of this year.
