Safety upgrades are coming to the stretch of Interstate-64 from Augusta County across Afton Mountain to Crozet. VDOT will be adding more cameras, a network of message signs, visibility detection sensors, and fiber optics to eventually change the speed limit as the weather changes. The improvements are coming to I-64 from mile-marker 94 at Waynesboro to mile-marker 107 at Crozet. A company in Springfield is getting a $4.6 million contract for the work. Governor McDonnell says that section of 64 has a higher than average accident rate related to bad weather. Construction will begin early next year and is scheduled to be wrapped up by the summer of 2015.
