COLONIAL HEIGHTS — At its monthly meeting today, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) awarded a contract worth approximately $9.4 million to J.L. Kent and Sons of Spotsylvania, Va., to widen and improve U.S. 360 in Hanover County.

Construction will include constructing eight lanes from Interstate 295 to the proposed Bell Creek Road intersection and six through lanes from Bell Creek Road through the Wynbrook Lane intersection, for added capacity and safety. The project will also add turn lanes and a median between the two directions of traffic.

The project is expected to begin in spring 2015. Construction is expected to be complete by spring 2017. More information is available at http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/richmond/route_360_and_bell.asp.
