Possible Traffic Delays Thursday ~ Upper Accomack County

This is a notice of potential traffic delays for Northern Accomack County on Thursday, April 14, 2011.
NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility anticipates the delivery of a component of Orbital Sciences Corporation’s Taurus II launch vehicle on April 14. This component is very large and constitutes an “oversized load”. It will be delivered on a specially designed truck/trailer combination and will travel from the Port of Wilmington in Delaware to Wallops Island in Virginia. Throughout its transit, the vehicle is expected to travel at relatively slow speeds, especially when turning at intersections.

The vehicle and its cargo will be entering Virginia from the north via Rt. 13 and travel south to Rt. 175 (at T’s Corner intersection.) It will then travel on Rt. 175 until reaching and turning onto Atlantic Road. It will then travel through the town of Atlantic until turning onto Wallops Island Rd. to Wallops Island.
