The next round of road maintenance work will start on the mountain in the next couple of weeks, so drivers should be aware of construction equipment, detours and delays. There are several major projects that the Prince William County contractors will be completing on selected roads. They will be replacing a number of culverts under Gore drive to improve drainage and prevent some of the road damage that drivers have seen. There will also be a couple of other culverts replaced at other mountain locations. After the culverts are replaced, then the contractors will be adding maintenance layers of chip coat to Ridge Road, Nelson, Mercer and Patent Court and sections of Gore Drive. This work should be competed by mid-October.
