[ARCHIVED] VDOT posts truck restriction signs on five roads

Through Truck Restriction sign

VDOT has posted through-truck restriction signs on five roads: Atlee Station Road (Rt. 637); Atlee Road (Rt. 638); New Ashcake Road (Rt. 643); Ashcake Road (Rt. 657); and Peaks Road (Rt. 657). The restrictions do not apply to pickup or panel trucks or any trucks (such as, for example, a truck being used by movers) with an origin or destination along the restricted routes.

Trucks serving the Wegmans project now under construction will have to use Sliding Hill Road.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously made the request in May 2020. The County argued that the lane width and geometry of the roads are unsafe for large trucks, raising the risk of crashes between passenger vehicles and large trucks. The roads are predominately residential in nature and serve residential traffic.
