Intersection of Route 250 and Route 151
SMART SCALE and Highway Safety Improvement Program funding was approved in July 2017 for reconstruction of the intersection of Route 250 and Route 151 in Afton, near the Nelson County line, as a roundabout. This project will improve operations and safety at the busy intersection while managing traffic speeds and correcting geometric deficiencies that contribute to its current high crash rate.
Design work on the $5.8 million project is under way.
A temporary traffic signal was installed in April 2017 as an intermediate measure. Advance warning flashers and inlane rumble strips have also been installed on the downhill Route 250 eastbound approach to slow traffic.
