ROUTE 460/29 ACCESS MANAGEMENT PROJECT UPDATE


LYNCHBURG – State and local elected officials, the Region 2000 Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), roadway users, as well as citizens and business owners along Route 460/29 between Route 501 and Route 29 (Monacan Parkway).in the City of Lynchburg have expressed their desires for safety improvements and preservation of the roadway’s capacity in this critical corridor.

As a result of recent action by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) to allocate additional funding to this project, the initial phase of improvements to this corridor will begin in 2010. Other improvements will take place as the funding becomes available in the approved Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP).

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) officials plan to hold public meetings to gain additional public input as these projects are developed. For further information on improvements to the Route 460/29 corridor, please contact VDOT at (434) 947-6559.
