CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia highway officials say safety improvements on Interstate 64 on Afton Mountain are nearing completion.

The Daily Progress reports (https://bit.ly/1OaXFcK ) that final construction and testing phases are scheduled over the next several weeks.

The $4.6 million project includes new dynamic message signs, traffic cameras and weather-detection devices between mile markers 94 and 107. The project is part of a traffic and safety management system in Augusta, Nelson and Albemarle counties.

Motorists should expect daytime shoulder closures on I-64, U.S. 250 near the Afton interchange and U.S. 340 near the I-64 interchange in Waynesboro.

The new equipment will undergo a testing phase from August to November.
