VDOT TO HOST “PARDON OUR DUST” MEETING FOR I-95/TEMPLE AVENUE PROJECT IN COLONIAL HEIGHTS
Public invited to learn about the project February 3 at Colonial Heights Courthouse

COLONIAL HEIGHTS—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a “pardon our dust” meeting on a project to improve the Temple Avenue interchange with the Interstate 95 ramps. The project includes realigning the ramps from Interstate 95 with the intersection at Temple Avenue and replacing the signalized intersection with a roundabout. Meet the design-build project team to learn more about the construction schedule and traffic impacts. Representatives from the City of Colonial Heights and Kroger will be available to answer questions about other ongoing area construction and coordination efforts.

The public can stop by between 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 3 at the Colonial Heights Courthouse, located at 550 Boulevard, Colonial Heights, VA 23834.  The meeting will be largely an open house format, which will provide attendees an opportunity to look over plans and learn information about construction phasing and traffic impacts during the multi-year project. Two general information presentations will be given at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in an adjoining room.  

Work is expected to begin in early 2016 and the contract completion date is November 2017.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this informational meeting may contact VDOT’s Civil Rights Division at (804) 524-6091 or TDD/TTY 711.

More information on the project is available at www.95templeimprovements.org, including the meeting’s brochure and the project’s frequently asked questions.
