CONSTRUCTION TO START AT INTERSECTION IN SPOTSYLVANIA
Left turn lane on Leavells Road to be lengthened, with new signal equipment and traffic pattern changes at intersection with Harrison Road
FREDERICKSBURG—Construction on a median and turn lane improvement project will begin in early January at the intersection of Route 639 (Leavells Road) and Route 620 (Harrison Road) in Spotsylvania County.
Motorists should be prepared for lane closures, construction activity and temporary traffic patterns at the intersection through April 2015, when the project will be completed.
The left turn lane on northbound Leavells Road will be lengthened to hold additional vehicles.
After construction is finished, only protected left turns on a green arrow signal will be permitted from northbound Leavells Road onto westbound Harrison Road, and from southbound Salem Church Road onto eastbound Harrison Road.
Medians will be installed on each intersection approach to separate traffic traveling in opposite directions. The median crossover on Leavells Road at Route 1474 (Griffith Way) closest to the intersection will be closed, but access to Griffith Way will be maintained at a second crossover.
New traffic signal equipment will be installed to accommodate the new traffic pattern.
At the end of construction, new pavement and lane markings will be applied at the intersection.
A contract for $221,198 was awarded to A & M Concrete Corp., of Dulles to build the project.
The project is being funded with federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds to enhance safety at the intersection by reducing the risk of angle crashes.
