VDOT HOLDS PUBLIC HEARING ON ROUTE 675 BRIDGE OVER CUB CREEK PROJECT IN CHARLOTTE COUNTY

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a design public hearing on a proposed project to replace the bridge and approaches on Route 675 over Cub Creek in Charlotte County.

 The hearing will be held on Thursday, November 15, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Central Middle School, 250 Statesmen Drive, Charlotte Court House, VA.  An inclement weather date of Tuesday, November 27, 2012 will be used if necessary. 

This hearing is being held to provide an opportunity for citizens or organizations to give VDOT input on the proposed project.  The hearing will be held in an open-house format with no formal presentation given.  VDOT representatives will be present to discuss the proposed project and to answer questions.

The primary purpose of this project is to replace the existing structurally deficient bridge and upgrade the roadway approaches to meet standards of the 30 mph design speed.   The road will be closed during construction and a signed detour will be provided. 

Comments about the proposed project may be submitted at the hearing or until November 28, 2012 (December 7, if hearing is held on inclement weather date) by mailing them to Renard Yeatts, Project Manager, Virginia Department of Transportation, 4219 Campbell Avenue, Lynchburg, Va., 24501.  Comments also can be emailed to lynchburginfo@vdot.virginia.gov. Please reference “Route 675 Bridge Replacement Public Hearing Comment” in the subject heading.
