LYNCHBURG - The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a combined design public hearing this month to show plans for two proposed turn lane projects on Route 151 in Nelson County.

The purpose of the meeting is to give citizens an opportunity to review and discuss plans for the proposed construction of turn lanes at two locations on Route 151, at Routes 635 and 638.
