PUBLIC INVITED TO ATTEND INFORMATION MEETING NEXT WEEK
Hanover County intersection improvements
COLONIAL HEIGHTS ― The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is hosting a pre-construction information meeting to provide citizens with an overview of the project including a description of the construction phases, traffic impacts and the projected timeline for the Lee Davis Road/Cold Harbor Road/Walnut Grove Road intersection improvements in Hanover County. Information will also be available regarding the nearby Chickahominy Bridge rehabilitation on Creighton Road.
The information meeting will be held Monday, November 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Mechanicsville Library (7461 Sherwood Crossing Place, Mechanicsville, VA 23111). This meeting will be open format with stations where residents can talk one-on-one with VDOT representatives. This flexible format allows participants to arrive whenever their schedule will allow.
The Lee Davis Road/Cold Harbor Road/Walnut Grove Road improvement project will involve modifying traffic signals, adding turn lanes, and constructing left and right turn lanes on all four directions of the intersection. These improvements will not only increase the capacity of the intersection, but it will also increase safety by providing adequate turn and merge lanes, resulting in the reduction of rear-end collisions.
The Chickahominy Bridge Rehabilitation on Creighton Road project will replace the bridge deck of the existing bridge. Road closure with detours will be implemented during construction. Work is expected to start fall 2011 and completion is expected spring 2013.
