During this time, local access is available for Mill Road on the North of the intersection, and a detour will be provided through James River Interchange to provide access to the South.

Road Closures on Highway 104 for both Eastbound and Westbound Traffic

On Friday May 7, between 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. there will be a temporary closure near the James River Interchange and near KM marker 193 between Kenzieville and Broadway for about 10 minutes. DNA requires a short road closure at two separate locations to allow for blasting near the main lanes.

This work is necessary to facilitate the construction of the new 104 Highway Twinning Project. Signage will be in place to remind the travelling public of lane reductions. Please be aware of construction zones and watch out for our workers. We understand construction activity can cause disruption and apologize for any inconvenience. We thank you for your patience.
