LEXINGTON, Va., Nov. 6, 2019 – Streets on post will be open, though traffic could be blocked at times for very brief periods, and in some places traffic lanes will be reduced due to construction activities.

Major construction activities are occurring for the new police headquarters at Limits Gates, for renovations for Preston Library, and for the addition to Scott Shipp Hall, as well as smaller projects throughout post. Please exercise caution while driving on post, especially in areas where traffic lanes have been compressed. Extreme caution should be exercised while driving on Letcher Avenue from Jackson Memorial Hall past Crozet Hall due to construction at Scott Shipp Hall. Sidewalk areas may also be closed near Smith Hall and Marshall Hall.
