What's Being Done?
VDOT’s 2017-2022 Six-Year Improvement Plan includes full-funding for the City of Bristol to widen Route 11 (Lee Highway) from near Blevins Boulevard to near Alexis Drive.
The project will improve access and safety along one of Bristol’s busiest routes, which also serves as an alternate route to I-81 in the event of an incident along the interstate.
Design for the $9.98 million project is underway, with right of way scheduled to begin in 2017. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2018.
