Traffic Steamrolled Friday Morning

Traffic on N. George Mason Drive was unexpectedly slowed by construction crews as they completed the resurfacing of the street in the intersection of N. Henderson Road.

The crew was to have completed resurfacing during the night, but police shut them down because of a noise complaint, and one of their machines broke down, said Ed Byrd, the construction manager for the county who was on the site.

They had completed the north-bound lanes between N. 4th Street and N. Henderson during the night. All that remained were small portions around the intersection itself, Mr. Byrd said.

Mr. Byrd said he gave the go-ahead to shut the lane down despite rush-hour to allow the crews to finish up the piece that remained. After the shut-down, the crew worked from 7:15 to 9:15 a.m.

The road had been defaced over the summer by townhouse construction at that corner.
