TRANSPORTATION COMMISSIONER APPROVES FOUR RICHMOND AREA CONTRACTS VALUED AT $1.2 MILLION
COLONIAL HEIGHTS—Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Commissioner Greg Whirley approved four contracts last week valued at approximately $1.2 million for Richmond area construction and maintenance.
The Lane Construction Corporation of Cheshire, Connecticut was awarded a $586,000 contract to remove and dispose bridge mounted sign structures, relocate existing sign panels to new sign structures or install new sign panels to new sign structures in various areas around Richmond. This project will increase the safety of the bridge structures. Lane closures will be required to complete this work. However, work will take place during off peak hours to reduce the impact on drivers. Completion is expected by August 2011.
D. W. Lyle Corporation of McKenney was awarded a $370,000 contract to replace existing culverts at four locations in Dinwiddie and Prince George counties. All work is expected to be completed in November. The locations are:
- Route 605 over Route 604
- Route 645 over Wheeler’s Pond
Prince George County
- Route 612 (between Route 611 and Route 616)
- Route 615 (from Route 614 to the end of the road)
Lee Hy Paving Corporation Inc. of Glen Allen was awarded a $178,000 contract to add paved shoulders to Lee Davis Road and Atlee Station Road in Hanover County. Both routes are located in high traffic areas and have two 11 to 12-foot paved travel lanes and grass shoulders. More than 10,300 drivers use Lee Davis Road each day and Atlee Station Road accommodates more than 8,000 vehicles on an average day. The improvements will add up to three feet of paved shoulders to each travel lane. This will allow drivers more room to correct their vehicles if needed. Work is expected to be completed in November.
The Richardson-Wayland Electrical Company LLC of Roanoke was awarded a $33,000 contract to install 12 fiber optic cables and conduit systems at four locations along I-95 between just north of the Woods Edge interchange (mile marker 59) in Chesterfield County and the I-95/I-85 interchange in Petersburg. Lane closures will not be required. Work is expected to be completed by January 2011.
